    Well as far as number 8 go, I think that was quite intentional (funeral services) and so it is oné of the funniest ads i have ever seen.

    Nice misplace ads. I really like this. lol

    I’m an advertiser, and indeed there are a lot of those misplacements.

    However, as the person above said, the funeral service ad on the subway was really intentional.

    Even though the joke is pretty awful, they’ve intentionally used the sarcasm in order to promote the funeral services. After all, it’s something people always hope they won’t have to use, and there they are, asking them to take a step forward in such a place.

    I find it funny, actually. And very creative. =p

    The funeral service in the underground is rather placed in an excellent position on purpose!
    Brilliant idea.
