Oneupweb Reviews: Weird Facebook Ads

Posted on in Blog

It’s Friday and everyone knows what that means, the last day before the weekend. Something special happens to people on Fridays. They seem rejuvenated, invigorated, excited. Maybe it’s the satisfaction of a job well done, or maybe it’s just the fact they have the next two days off. Either way, to go along with the Friday wonder, we thought we would have a little fun with our Oneupweb Reviews blog today.

We’ve all seen them while posting on our walls, minding our own business. Then something catches our eye, off to the right, it’s a Facebook Ad. Some of them make no sense, while others are just hilarious. These Facebook ads can get pretty weird. Let’s take a look some of our favorite, and see how they rate.

credit report ad Are they offering immortality or a credit report?
credit card ad This is legit, I can tell by their inquisitive nature.
facebook fan page ad It’s true, one time during Thanksgiving my brother carelessly shouted out, “Let’s eat Grandma!” Talk about a misunderstanding. Grandma doesn’t visit much anymore.
hollywood tanning ad Everyone knows this secret, it’s called permanent marker.
Harry Potter scholarship ad I have two questions, is this Harry Potter, or Hermione wearing Harry’s glasses and sporting a five o-clock shadow? And unless this scholarship is for Hogwarts, I don’t see the point. We all know that’s where HP fans go.

spoon ad I remember the spoon talk. Your partner says to you, we need to talk. You think, great here we go. And for the next hour, you get berated about how your spoon collection is taking priority over the relationship. People if I had a problem with spoons, would I be able to still use knives and forks? I can quit collecting spoons anytime I want to.
love child ad My wife wants to have a baby; I thought this would be easier, like it says, no mess. Apparently the image didn’t help my cause.
law pass ad So that’s how they pass laws, makes total sense now.

Although no one really enjoys being advertised to, we all know that that’s what makes businesses like Facebook possible. And at least we can say that the marketers here have kept us entertained. So for all the bizarre ads that Facebook has produced we give Facebook Ads…
