Oops! 20 Totally Inappropriate Ad Placement Fails

Oops.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

In today's world, advertising is literally everywhere. You can't even swing a cat around by the tail without hitting a sign of some sort, which brings me to two points: First, you shouldn't swing cats by their tails. It's cruel. What's wrong with you? Stop doing that.

Second, there are soooo many opportunities for advertising placement fails like the ones in this gallery. It's actually amazing that it doesn't happen more often.

Sometimes these fails are the product of a lazy employee who wasn't paying attention to where he put that knife or brassiere display. Other times, these totally innocent signs were placed next to other objects or signage so that things ended up looking a teensy bit inappropriate. Or in some cases, A LOT inappropriate. 

Click through to see all of the gloriously inappropriate ad placement fails!
