The Funny Ads Archive – the world’s funniest adverts, commercials and digital marketing all in one place
The funniest commercials – Facebook Ads, YouTube Pre-Roll, TV Adverts and Print Advertising – all gathered together in one database. We use it as a mood board to help our own clients work out what they do / don’t want to see in their content. You can use it any. way you want.
Whether it’s classics like everyone’s favourite Dollar Shave Club Ad, or sleeper hits like James Blunt’s turn in the National Lottery’s #PleaseNotThem campaign – everything in the archive, good or bad, is here because there’s something we can learn from it.
We’ll be adding at least 10 more each week (some brand new, some vintage classics) – but if there’s Ad you love that hasn’t yet made it into the database, why not add it for us! Be sure to rate the Ads you watch, too – as each month we’ll give awards to the funniest Ads in the archive – as voted for by you.
Our Top Picks
The biggest mistake any brand can make is to start to create their Ad before they’ve taken the time to come up with a good idea.
That’s especially true when it comes to comedy. You need to start with your brand’s message, and deliver it with humour in a way that chimes perfectly with your target audience. If you start by simply trying to “make jokes”, you’re on the road to nowhere.
Don’t want to have to go rifling through the entire archive just to find some inspiration? Never fear – we’ve curated a playlist of our faves. Just hit play, sit back, relax, and think about how you could use the same techniques to boost your brand.
Here’s where we keep ALL of our Ads. If you’re looking for inspiration for your next funny advertisement, and want to scroll through everything in the archive free from the shackles of dates and categories, this is the place for you.
Every now and then, we take a break from reviewing the most popular Funny Ads to introduce you to a brand we think is awesome on social media. Our love letters to companies who are crushing the comedy on social. You can find all of those right here.

It’s not just TV spots we’ve got in the archive – we love to collect great examples of Funny Facebook Pages, Digital Marketing that makes us laugh, LOL-filled Landing Pages, and brands on social media deploying wit, warmth, sass and silliness in order to spread their brand message, and to deliver entertaining customer service.
If you’re looking for good ideas as to what works, and what doesn’t, when you’re trying to interrupt your potential customer’s daily life and break through into their news feed this is the part of the archive you’ll love the most.
Ahh, the 80s. It was a simpler time – and the jokes in our adverts were pretty simple too. Nevertheless – a few gems. And you’ll find those here.

Our Top Picks for 2019
There were some really funny commercials in 2019. Here we have the best examples of humour in advertising from the last year – all gathered together in a single YouTube playlist so you don’t even have to leave the page. How generous are we?!
The decade that gave us The Spice Girls also gave us some brilliantly entertaining adverts. And this is fast becoming the best place to find them.
As 1999 turned into 2000, we all breathed a huge sigh of relief that the millennium bug hadn’t brought down any planes at the stroke of midnight after all. And the world celebrated by making some of the funniest adverts and commercials of all time.
The best way to make us buy into that idea that your planes, trains, automobiles and travel accessories are better than anyone else’s? Make us laugh, of course! One of these Ads managed to get 93x the reach of a straight Ad selling the exact same product. We won’t tell you which one, though.
