The Advertising Graveyard

This site contains a number of ads that were not used, in many cases, because they were tasteless. A brief descripton of each ad is provided, including the circumstances under which it was designed. The ads could be used in an Advertising class in which the discussion of ethics or meaning of the ad is discussed. Be forewarned, however, that some of these have been banned. The user will have to click on the "More" at the bottom of the description on each ad.
