60 Humorous Print Advertisements to Tickle Your Bones

Everyone needs a little humour in their hectic lives and more often than before, advertisers try to inject some fun into their advertisements. Injecting humour into their advertisements does not necessarily mean that the ads are better than others. However, the smart play on words and careful consideration of the ad’s objectives, target audience and market standards, humour can help the advertisement increase effectiveness and widen its receptiveness.

When using humour as a creative strategy, advertising firms agree that it increase audience attention, at least on the first few exposures to this form of persuasive communication. However, we cannot deny the fact that audiences’ patience has shrunk and their attention span is shorter as compared to the past.
