With social media taking over the world, physical ads are slowly becoming a relic of the past. After all, it’s much easier to advertise on Craigslist or Facebook than have to design, print out and put up posters in the streets. However, online entertainers Alan Wagner and Sydney Marquez snatched the opportunity to transform the fading trend into comedy.
They create humorous and bizarre posters for various weird products and services. “I knew I wasn’t sassy enough to make traditional memes. So I came up with the idea to make absurd stuff […] and act as though I just found it on the street.” Alan told Bored Panda. “They’re inspired by anything I see or anything I might be thinking about. [Also] as someone who’s struggled with mental illness and never felt like they’ve fit in with what was considered “normal”, I want to attack normal.” he elaborated on what inspired them. And judging by the missing contact number papers, some people do seem to need those services. Scroll down below to see them for yourself and don’t forget to comment and vote for your favorites!
