Some Great Ads from Around the World, and a Villanova/Lego video

I came across a company that uses Twitter to post some of the most clever ads/packaging it has discovered. As often happens, I spent way too much time on the site, because there was always one more ad to look at.

So thank you to marketing_birds for the inspiration for today’s post, in which I thought I would just share some of my favorite ads that I came across.

Marketing Birds had posted a short video about Legos, which I thought I would share. And in a strange coincidence, a friend had just posted something about this to Facebook earlier today.

And while we’re on the subject of Legos, and trying to forget about Nova’s loss this past weekend, here’s a classic Lego re-enactment of last year’s amazing finish to March Madness:
