Instead, many companies compete to entice the audience into researching their product. As a result many will employ humour to create funny ads that shine out from the crowd and attract customers due to their appeal combined with the quality of the product. Some advertisement videos have achieved huge fame and surpassed even TV shows or other marketing figures in terms of recognisability. The following are my top 5 favourite funny advertisement videos (in no particular order). To view the advertisements, click the headings. Emma This French advertisement for Le Trefle toilet paper stands out due to its simplicity. Many modern advertisements try far too hard to appeal to all age groups and humours; this ends up causing the opposite, with many seeing how desperate the company might be to appear  funny. However this particular funny ads dialogue consists of just one word: its title. The two characters are established very well due to the actor’s reactions and expressions. This also appeals to couples, as it showcases different attitudes and personalities that clash but seem to fit together. The involvement of technology against the “old-fashioned” way engages many as the topic fits perfectly into the modern day. For something as basic and boring as toilet paper, this funny ad perfectly encapsulates the two drastic opinions towards the contrast between modern technology and what most have grown up with, all with just a very simple punchline.
