We get to see ads, banners, books, paintings and many similar things every day. However, some of them grab our attention instantly. We stare at them because they look a bit funny, weird or inappropriate for the situation. Sometimes placement can be wrong, and someone times our perspective goes wrong. Either way, hilarious results are guaranteed! Here are fifteen pictures that show us why placement and perspective are important.
1.Something is Really Wrong with These Hitman and Huggies ads

This picture perfectly shows why placement is a thing, and why one should care about it. It looks awkward and inappropriate, but you still can't unsee how well those two billboards ads were aligned perfectly. Agent 47... you shouldn't aim your guns at kids! From an ad agency's perspective, we think they got what they wanted! Publicity!!!

2.Not a Great Reaction to a Bad News

We got this picture for you from a magazine. If you keep reading different kinds of magazines, you will come across placement issues like these every now and then. So, what happened here? A girl talks about her sister who accidentally killed her, while the ad in the next page completely ruined the mood of the reader with a pretty awkward ad title and expression.

3.When Nature Has Other Ideas

We got to feel sorry for the two men on the billboard, as both of them were completely got trolled by mother nature! If you go to the other side and see this picture, this would look pretty normal. This picture is an example how one can see different sides of an object by changing perspectives and viewing angles.

4.When Taglines Turn Funny

Bring protection... but to where? This tagline is already funny, and sounds like one got to bring protection (contraception) to theater. Interestingly, the property in the picture is a hospital, The hospital management must have got some very angry patients after this. By the way, 'A Million Ways to Die in the West' is a comedy film which was released this year, by the makers of Ted.

5.This Unfortunate Splatter of Mud

After seeing this picture, we came to a conclusion that advertising on buses is a bad idea for those companies that sell white panties! As a business owner, or an ad agency, it's hard to guess how their ad campaigns can go wrong until something like this happens. Despite the fail, we still see this as a win. Businesses take publicity, no matter how it comes.

6.This Hilarious Display Rack

Can you spot and tell us what went wrong here? Yes, check that cone-headed girl there! Those mascara wands are placed one on each other in a way that made girl in the bottom picture look like if she was bald. If you can give an extra second when you see things around yourself, you would definitely find hilarious scenes like these.

7.This Wrongly Placed Bar Code

That bar code should have been placed anywhere else on the book cover, so the cartoon image there doesn't look awkward. Book publishers spend some money on getting their book covers done. They pay artists to draw cartoons and vectors. Publishers or distributors should make sure those images are seen.

8.Berries and Bras Don't Go Well Together

The women on the two pictures look happy and smiling! If you look closely, the pictures of hands look like they are carefully holding the women's breasts.  The items there on the display are bras. The one on the extreme left is a gift card. If the gift card and bras are related, why is there a picture of berries on them?

9.The Worst Ever Sentence to Read in a Hospital

It is obviously the worst sentence to read in a doctor's office. And yes, some word was missing there. Can you think of a suitable word that would make the whole sentence sensible, keeping the fact in mind that it was found in a hospital? Ok, let us tell you. The word that gone missing there is HOW. It is a Time Magazine cover that dates back to 2012.

10.This Terrible Ad Placement

We love anime, and we love coffee! It looks like they both don't go well when they are brought together. This is indeed a terrible, terrible, ad placement. This is another great example how wrong placements can ruin many things at once. The McDonald's ad here got spoiled, and so does the show in the back.

11.Now It's Infographic's Turn

That infographic strip there made that guy look like he was masturbating. It's not just this hand, but his facial expressions too added more weight to the picture. Unfortunately for the guy, the guy next to him couldn't stop staring at his privates. Well, no one knows what's happening under the strip!

12.Oh No, Grandma

What have you done ad agency guy? You couldn't find any other place to put this incredibly sweet grandma's banner? We know you can't unsee those two bulging lights. This picture does look hilarious. Don't try to laugh if you think this grandma deserve some respect! This is one more hilarious picture that was completely ruined by a wrong placement.

13.This Placement Fail that Make Miley Cyrus Proud

Even a local grocery store owner wouldn't advertise his business in such places. Nestle is a multinational and global food processing business that can make much better ads than these or is that a hint that Nestle's products are trash? We don't know, We are not sure who might have made this advertisement, but it looks terribly bad and ugly. Hey there girl, you shouldn't lick random nasty stuff like that.

14.Have You Heard About Anatidaephobia Before?

We have two things here for you. One is a fail created by a wrong ad placement, and other is a new phobia that many of you might not have heard before. Anatidaephobia is a fear being watched continuously by a duck. Yes, there are people who can't stop thinking that a duck is constantly watching them.

15.Starbucks S... cks

This is unfortunate. Nothing much Starbucks can do about that. In advertising, placement is very important. If something goes wrong, brands may still gain publicity from their fail. However, the publicity they got can be negative sometimes. 
Have you ever personally seen similar fails  before?
