MORE GOOD SIGNS

Here's a few more funny/clever/smart-ass advertisements as an antidote to the usual run-of-the-mill boring billboards and bus-sides.

Firstly, a Nicotinell ad that I'm surprised isn't yet featured on the Mayor of (SMOKEFREE) London's buses...


On the subject of cleaning up your act, here's how Proctor & Gamble advertised their obviously highly efficient Mr Clean products on a New York street...


Here's one way to advertise Snickers without actually using the name...


And even if you never eat McDonalds, a sundial might come in handy - if only to tell that it's time NOT to eat your next Big Mac and Fries...


And finally --- for now --- here's how they turned one of New York City's famous permanently-steaming manholes into an ad for Folgers Coffee...

Is the sewer cover an indication of what they put in the coffee?!

Well, Brian! You certainly picked your day to talk about New York's STEAMING MANHOLES! How unfortunate!

These ads are absolutely brilliant - we could do with more of those everywhere!
