Most people don’t pay attention to ads anymore. People now expect ads to actually speak to them—to connect to their hopes and dreams, to flip their thinking in unexpected ways and to reflect the world they would like to see around them. Advertising can offer this because, every once in a while, you will find yourself cracking up or wanting more after watching a commercial that connects with you. These are some of the most creative ads worth sharing.
