Let’s face it, in today’s world, the minute you leave the house it’s impossible not to be bombarded by flyers, billboards, and ads telling you how you should spend your hard earned money. Most of the time, you ignore the obnoxious sales pitches and try to focus on living your life. But sometimes, particularly funny signs actually manage to catch your attention.
Not every company has the skill, wit, and humor to create great ads that actually make you want to stop and stare. What it comes to getting it right, there’s one leader in the field: Trader Joe’s.
