Funny ads are funny, but advertisements that add a twist to the plotline are the ones that first have you gaping, and then you burst out laughing. Most such ads are seen coming out of the Asian advertising industry. Today, we have compiled some of the Asian ads that are ultimate mind-boggling triggers that will make no sense at all but are most definitely hilarious.
1. Coffee 21
After seeing tons of Asian ads, it is clear that this region is overtly obsessed with looks. But only in this ad will you see a stereotype being thrashed only to enforce another stereotype. And you are not sure whether you should cry or laugh about it.
Because clearly, the beauty matters, if not of the face then of body.
Every zombie movie ever has the ugliest of zombies. Only in Asian ads will you question this discrimination. The ad is about a brew that has you look pretty that even the zombies want to know your secret.
3. Crocodile Innovations
It seems that Asian ads excel in exploiting stereotypes. One universal stereotype they exploit in this ad is, wives are always yelling at you. And it is nothing new because they were doing that from the time of cavepeople.
This ad begins by telling you a modern cinderella story. Cinderella makes herself non-recognizable by treating her hair. She goes to the royal ball and hits it off with the prince.
After separation, the boy goes to every extent in trying to find the girl. I don’t want to spoil the end, so take a look at it yourself!
This IKEA ad made in Thailand is funny as hell. The ad is about a dinner set, and it places the product at the center of the conversation, but the plot is just out of this world. Who would think of promoting dinner set through an untrusting husband?
6. Mom’s Touch
This Korean ad begins with a cute couple hanging out. While hugging the boyfriend, the girl’s face gets smudged on his shirt. And what he finds is probably the miracle of cosmetics.
7. SECOM Home Security
This is probably the best ad amongst all of them. Five minutes of gaining a superpower, and what one could do in those 5 minutes. Imagine the horror when you realize you were not as alone in the world as you thought you were.
8. Carre De Chocolat
Could you keep your eye open for hours and hours without blinking with the whole world watching? Well, this lady could and, all through her cooking, cleaning and her almost-road-accidents.
9. Ajinomoto Stadium
This is probably the weirdest way of promoting a stadium but also the most mind-boggling one. Asian ads, for sure, are a drama in themselves.
Aren’t they just full of fun? It makes you wonder about the brains that thought about the ads, the journey which resulted in ads that bring forward such storylines. Because how can one make such funny yet non-sensical ads?
