Stupid Ads

This rug by Roche Bobois is hideous, but this ad for it made me laugh out loud.

As seen in the Frenchie version of Architectural Digest.

aww poor confused cow. I don't think I'm going to buy it if a cow likes it. I can just picture a dog being confused and going to the bathroom all over it!

tulpen said...

yep, would be way funnier if the cow was taking a huge dump on the ugly thing.

Down and Out Chic said...

the cow won't even touch the hideous thing.

Farah said...

that must be one confused cow..

Alisa said...

I like the ad (cute cow), but the rug is awful. I love contemporary design, but often the rugs are ugly.

pearls said...

that does not make me want to buy that rug, thats for sure. poor cow.

Lady Ren said...

mold- that is what it looks like to me. I just want to clean it.

L.A. Daze said...

Hahaha the cow should take a dump on that rug. Poor cow. Should I eat it or not? Ahahahaaha.

Poor cow...he doesn't know whether to graze on it or take a steaming pile of dung on it.

I go for the latter.

Char said...

"How now..Brown cow"?

blueviolet said...

What, does the cow want to eat it? Or make a cowpie on it?

Asylum Dolly said...

Tee hee. Poor moo cow!
In a way, the inclusion of the cow in this ad kinda implies that they do realise what a fugly rugly it is. It most likely was intended to look very modern and arty, but then they realised, so just went with the joke. Good stuff!

Caroline said...

OMG...hilarious!

corporate training said...

When a cow is prettier than the rug, you know you went wrong with the ad. Unless in reality it's an ad for cows, and not rugs.

Tracie said...

I don't like the rug but I'm thinking it would hide the dirt pretty well.

ahahahah

WendyB said...

We're always asking my toddler nephew things like, "What does the cow say?"

Now I know the answer is, "I don't like this rug."

Pretty Little World said...

I might buy the rug if it also came with the cow...

Kathryn said...

I hate ads that don't make it clear what they are trying to sell...it's the cow, right?

Because if it is the rug, why would the cow staring at it make some one thing a human would want to buy it and last time I checked, cows don't have cash (or credit cards).

If it is the rug hiding it under ugly furniture would be a good start for marketing it.

Sam said...

Fantastic! :0)

Lorena said...

I am thinking if the cow liked it.
My dogs probably will too..
Gotta find a Roche Moomoois store.
