    The picture titled “Coop’s Paint” is actually a billboard for Nationwide Insurance. Coop’s Paint is a made up company for purposes of the ad.

    All 3 billboards are for the same ad showing you can’t take anything for granted with the paint intact, the paint spilled over, and the tag line (including a splatter of paint on the last one).

    I live nearby and see it everyday :-)

    the “coops paints” ad is actually for nationwide insurance. it’s in downtown columbus, ohio (where nationwide is headquartered). an agency created the brand coops paints purely for the purpose of this advert.

  12. Those that make an appeal to the environment awareness are truly ingenious!

    The air guitar campaign is a killer! :D

  13. No, the real killer is Bergmann Funeral Services’ ‘Come a little closer.’ ;)
    Really liked Nationwide Insurance. And, today morning I started my new business: Coop’s Paints!

  14. brilliant! loved the Smart one.

  15. Really cool list.

    The Mr. Clean sidewalk strip was the best imo :)

  16. mr. clean ad is brilliant.
    but it might get someone killed.

  17. So many brilliantly visual ads! I love the air guitar, gave me a chuckle. Don’t get the Mickey D’s one…can someone explain? lol

  18. The one for Liquid Paper is actually for FedEx Office (formerly FedEx Kinko’s). You can see their logo at the bottom of the liquid paper bottle.

  19. lol @ “American nothing.”

  20. do any body have an idea for companies that create these advertisments

  21. wow, very nice…

  22. Run!
    Should’ve put a video camera next to it :)

  23. Ramiro Cortez /

  24. Fargo Venize Rounge /
