Most advertising experts think long and hard before ordering a design, and most marketing directors think very carefully about how an ad will be perceived before giving it the final approval, so it’s amazing how often we continue to see advertising fails. While there is no shortage of lists of marketing fails on the internet, this list in particular deals with vehicle advertising fails.

Automobiles are difficult to use as marketing platforms because they have many moving components. Sliding doors. Windows. Trunks. You would think that marketers would take each part into consideration before ordering the final implementation, but hilariously, many do not. And society thanks them for it. After all, thanks to their oversight, we now have these 25 vehicle advertisement fails to give us a good laugh and to make us feel a little bit better of our own mess-ups at work, which are probably not as bad as these.
