The Dodgiest Ad I Ever Saw

April 24, 2008 Blog 9 comments

As I was going home last night, I spotted this slip of paper under my door. I think it can easily qualify as the most dodgy looking piece of marketing material ever conceived by mankind.


PS – The wet spot on the right isn’t purposefully created to add to the filth. Rather it was created by me resting my wine glass on this direct mailer.

  1. Well, Walter, look at the positive side – at least he bothers to market himself! Some people don’t and wonder why they are not successful.

  2. eh, wah lau.. Jeffrey 97453647 ahhahaha

    time to sign this dude up for some serious SPAM!

    i think it’ll be fun.. or we can do prank calls and record the conversations.. kekekekeke

  3. fwah..I will categorise this together with the same ads as “Good time in Indonesia, call XXX at XXXXXXXX”.

    Or one of those illegal video tapes ads we receive back in the days of yonder..heheh..old times..

  4. FWAH!

    So did you call him up and “pretend” tat you are interested to find out out to earn money?

    HAHA, maybe you should. To find out what this product is to have such an interesting marketing channel 🙂


  5. Thanks for your comments guys! Its quite interesting and quirky in my honest opinion, although some may feel that its hard sell marketing at its hardest. Well, I think one should consider the trust factor in any advertising material too, and this one really sucks in that arena! Big time!
