In a nutshell, ambient advertising is all about placing the ad in an unusual place, where the viewer is less expecting to see it. This way, the ad will be more successful because it will create a higher impact. Also, the unusual its format is, the better the result. There are many ways to create an ambient ad but one of the most popular is to make it as a reproduction on a larger or smaller scale of the advertised product. This is a great way to make the viewer more curious and make it take a closer look. To make an idea of how funny these ambient ads really are, check out these 30 examples.

    Dear Bogdan – Live experiential art gets people to unravel this entire collection of whimsical, puzzling, thoughtful and creative artistry. I love it and will share. Lots of favorites, but I do like the bus with the batteries and the dental floss.
