I’m a marketing major. I’ve spent the past 4 years learning how to best sell things to people. You’d think my life is either all about spending my time in a grey suit and smoking hookah while trying to innovate some Ad that will garner the attention of millions. That, or I spend it wearing a beanie at a Starbucks on my brand new Macbook sipping a mocha frappuccino latte. Honestly, while both lives sound enticing, most of what I do involves spending my day in bed watching Ads on YouTube that I’ll never make, many of which are hilarious by the way. So today, I’m going to share with you a compilation of some funny Arabic ads that I’ve come across. There’s no particular order, but all contain a large dose of lol’s.
