How about bag full of ideas? Yes, I’m sure you must have plenty of them yourself, but I’m sure these creative (sometimes crazy) ideas can work wonders. Starting from business to advertising to anything under the sun, Half Bakery provides you some great creative, sometimes weird ideas.

1. Make Advertising pointless by spreading the slogans: This is a top-secret, anonymous group of people (like the Freemasons maybe) that goes around a big city and does this: They create ads for companies and put other companies’ slogans and logos on them.

For example: There are some things money can’t buy. For everything else there’s American Express(TM). (In reality that’s a Mastercard commercial).

The A.A. society will create beautiful, full-color ads and distribute them through various media: posters, magazines, billboards, etc. The ads will mix up everyone else’s selling points, and, in fact, large corporations may even spend millions suing each other over the ads, accusing each other of ripping off a reserved trademark. When in reality it’s just some secretive folks who want to make the world a more fun and more gentle place (link)

2. Never seen on TV: How about Logo indicating that the product has never been advertised?

Some novelty products still print that red “As Seen On TV” logo on the box, even though the days when people see it and think “Well, if it was advertised on TV then it’s got to be good!” are probably long past.Why not impress people instead by certifying that this product has *never* been advertised? There could be a certification from Consumers Union stating that this product has never appeared, in any form, in an ad on TV, newspaper, film, magazine, or radio. The box would sport a blue question mark with the logo “Never seen on TV”, and this way companies could target some of their products to the anti-advertising consumer segment in a sanctioned way (link).

3. Ad-Punisher (Punish intrusive banner ads): I like this ideas. More often than not, we generally don’t mind well-behaved banner ads. But increasingly they seem to be locked in a sort of arms race of attention-getting behaviours.

Windows pop up over the text content but within the browser, dance around so you have to chase their close buttons (if they have them at all), play music but don’t have an off switch, and generally harsh your mellow when all you’re trying to do is waste some valuable working time reading about the seven best ways to demotivate your staff.

And it’s not just porn sites that do this – ‘reputable’ sites like Wired and New Scientist are among the worst offenders. There needs to be a way for the hapless workday web-surfer to Strike Back !

Enter AdPunisher – an enforcer of social norms in banner ads. It works like this:

1. You register with the AdPunisher site (via a captcha) so it knows how many unique users it has.

2. In return, you download a browser toolbar button marked ‘Punish!’.

3. When you see a truly annoying banner ad, you simply click the ‘punish’ button, and then click on the banner ad the way it wants you to.

4. AdPunisher then sends that URL to the AdPunisher server’s “annoying ads” database.

5. If more than some percentage (say 60%) of AdPunisher users find an ad annoying enough to punish, that URL gets sent out to all the AdPunisher clients’ “blocked” lists. Thenceforth, any attempt to go to that URL is simply discarded.

So you can click on an annoying banner ad and it will go away, *but* the advertiser won’t get a click, so the site host won’t get their two cents worth.

There’s probably wrinkles in this, and of course advertisers will find countermeasures, but that’s the general idea… (link)

4. Commercial break clock: Real simple: at the start of each commercial break on TV, a little time-clock appears in the corner of your screen, informing you exactly how long the commercial break will last, and counts down until the program comes back on. This way you can time your piss-breaks and snack runs accordingly. Perhaps it even has an audio feature to alert you if you’re in another room. [note: this is slightly different than the picture-in-picture technology offered on fancy TVs, as it gives a time count so you don’t have to keep running back into the room to see if your show’s on.][another note: as this totally defeats the purpose of television advertising, TV manufacturer’s and advertisers would never let it get produced. oh well.] [Link]

Well, that’s about it. I know I’m killing the 30-second spot but what the heck? Sometimes those irrelevant, awry adverts should understand the importance of killing someone else’s time 😛
