Surrealistic style still sells!



Have you read this week's Hot Spot ad about surrealistic ads and how we still use them today? Here are some surreal ads and a comic from the 7/24/08 Times. Can you identify what type of surreal treatment is being used? Try looking at ads from other days of the week, like Sunday, for even more surreal appeal! Use the comments bar below to tell us the day, page number and what the ad looks like and we will post it here! (Tip: You can click on pictures and they will appear in larger format.)
