There’s Nothing Like Bad Ad Puns to Kick Off the Week

 

The beauty of industry-related Tumblrs once again reveals itself as we’ve now been made aware of a fairly new one called “Fuck Yeah Advertising Puns,” which was created by Alex King and Mike Phillips, copywriter and planner, respectively, at London-based shop, Tullo Marshall Warren. While the lads appear to have been updating their Tumblr fairly consistently since late February, it was only today that we discovered Phillips doing a little self-promoting on Twitter.

Anyhow, nothing like captured images of terrible ad puns–whether outdoor, in print, etc–, complete with punny/corny captions to alleviate any case of the Mondays one might have. Though, considering how gorgeous it is in NYC today, it’s hard to feel any sort of malaise, but we digress. Above, we have just a couple of examples from King and Phillips’ Tumblr, which is basically still in nascent form but will hopefully be more frequently updated in the days to come. And yes, you can submit your own.
