Funny Business Signs Put Up For Your Entertainment
1 Fresh Dough Of Bel-Air
This pizza place found the perfect way to advertise their super-fresh dough: by referencing the beloved 90s sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
If the pizza dough is even fresher than Will Smith in his prime, the pizza is definitely worth a try. Hopefully, it doesn’t disappoint.
2 Joe Left
Some employees are just clumsier than others. In this case, Joe was definitely the problem child of the worksite.
But ever since Joe moved onto greener pastures, his former work has been accident-free. If only he had left sooner.
3 Dear Abby
What’s an employer to do when their employee just won’t listen? Apparently, this boss tried everything to get Abby to take her work seriously.
Finally, he decided to announce her bad work ethic to the world. Let’s hope this sign finally got Abby to get her act together.
4 Something Witty
We’re not sure if the person who put up this sign was trying to be clever, or if they just completely understood the directions.
Either way, they ended up with a pretty hilarious sign that’s sure to capture the attention of anyone driving by.
5 Go Rams
While God may not be rooting for a football team on Superbowl Sunday, that doesn’t mean his congregation has to stay neutral. When given the opportunity to put up church signage near a big game, this sign guy decided to give a shout out to his favorite team.
No one knows who God is rooting for, but this guy is rooting for the Rams!
6 False Advertising
Well, this sign is just mean. Obviously, a liquor store providing free beer is going to pull in lots of customers.
But if they’re also being open about their false advertising, it’s likely they’re not actually offering free beer. In other words, don’t get your hopes up if you visit this liquor store.
7 Water Or Wine
This sign is especially effective if you’re something of a water snob. Do you really want to risk ingesting bacteria from less-than-clean water?
If you want to be safe, just drink alcohol! Specifically, down a glass of wine or beer, which is definitely less healthy, but also bacteria-free!
8 Safety Sarcasm
You really shouldn’t have to tell people to stay off the tracks at a train station, but these are the times we live in. Rather than making a normal safety sign, however, these sign-creators decided to add a little sarcasm into their safety warning.
In short, if you can read the sign, you should stay far away from the train tracks.
9 Swimsuit Season
In general, people tend to go on a diet as soon as swimsuit season rolls around. But once the summer season is over, it’s all fair game.
Krispy Kreme’s sales may have gone down while everyone was fighting to look good in their bikinis, but even the doughnut chain knows that winter will bring a new batch of doughnut-craving customers to their doors.
10 When One Door Closes…
Rather than embracing the age-old adage, “When one door closes, another one opens,” this business sign decided to make a different, clever point.
As the sign says, a door that closes can simply be reopened. There’s no need to find an entirely new door when you just use the first door as intended.
11 Mr. Miyagi’s Car Wash
This car wash decided to let everyone know just how talented their employees are by referencing the 1984 film The Karate Kid.
If you get your car cleaned here, you can expect a perfect wax on and wax off. But don’t challenge the employees—they’re bound to be quite skilled in karate.
12 Is Everything Okay?
Whether you’re in a good mood or a bad mood, it’s always a good time to have a drink. At least, that’s what this business seems to think.
Whether happy, sad, angry, or any other emotion, they want you to come on in and enjoy a nice glass of your favorite poison.
13 Mayo Neighs
This veterinarian is advertising his services simply by being funny. The sign says nothing at all about his actual skill.
But it does say that he’s truly hilarious. Would you visit a vet just because he’s funny?
14 Shoe Repair
It’s obvious this shoe repairman really loves his job…and shoes in general. In fact, he loves them so much that he took the time to come up with a creative sign full of shoe puns.
If you want your sole saved by someone who will dye for you, visit this handyman.
This is obviously a sign advertising some sort of printing services. The sad thing is, they’re not wrong.
We’re constantly forgetting how to spell congratulashins…congratulashions…congratalatians. Ugh, we give up.
16 We Deliver
Some pizza places offer special deals on their delivery, such as the promise of a free pie if your pizza isn’t delivered in 20 minutes. But when you order from JD’s Pizza, you have to accept that the delivery time may be a little longer, especially if you live far away.
And don’t expect them to take any responsibility for your late pie. If it doesn’t get there fast enough, maybe you should order from somewhere closer.
It’s unclear if this sign was actually meant to be funny or not. But either way, the final product is hilarious. The irony of a business focused on alignment who can’t even keep their sign straight is just too good.
If it is an accident, the business owners should definitely lean into the mistake and avoid making repairs.
18 Free Beer
A bar offering free beer? Sign us up! Unfortunately, in this case, thirsty potential customers may need to read the sign more closely if they don’t want to be let down once they step inside.
The bar doesn’t actually offer free beer, but it does offer free Wi-Fi and great beer!
19 Best Prices
If you want to spend the day at an amusement park, you obviously want a good price for your day of fun. Thankfully, Zig-E’s Funland was voted the best prices in town by some guy who likes to save money.
At least, that’s what their sign says. Should you trust it, or would you continue researching for better information about the best prices?
20 Cat Puns
This animal clinic decided to pull in customers with their humor alone. But with puns like this, it has to be a pleasant place to visit, right?
At the very least, you know you’ll be around funny people while caring for your pet.
21 Pet-Friendly Comfort Inn
Something very odd must have happened at this Comfort Inn. While the hotel is comfortable accepting furry friends, they apparently draw the line at bears. For most of us, this sounds like a no-brainer.
But according to the hotel, they’ve had some issues with bears in the past. If you’re unlucky enough to have a pet bear, you’ll have to find different accommodation.
22 I Changed The Sign
According to this business sign, poor Dave made the unfortunate mistake of forgetting to tell his employee what to change the sign to.
Without clear direction, the employee took matters into his own hands, resulting in this hilarious sign. In all fairness, he did follow Dave’s directions.
23 Convenient Stores
Viewed on their own, none of these business signs are particularly funny. But placed all in a row, the signs create a hilarious picture. First, you can declare bankruptcy. Then you can deal with the subsequent divorce right next door.
After all that emotional trauma, you’re definitely going to need a drink. Thankfully, just to your left, you can find all the adult beverages you’ll ever need to deal with your life falling apart. It gives a whole new meaning to convenience stores.
24 24-Hour Surveillance
Plenty of stores have 24-hour surveillance. But very few of them tell you why they decided to install the cameras. Apparently, for this business, a pooping problem created the need for constant video surveillance.
Hopefully, the cameras encouraged the person at fault to take care of their bathroom problems in private.
25 Push To Open
Since it’s hard to know whether to push or pull a door simply from looking at it, many businesses include a sign directing their customers on the best method of opening the door. But this business takes a slightly different approach. They put a sign first instructing their customers to push, then to pull, then to move to the left and try the actual entrance.
Obviously, there’s something about this area that makes it look like a door, and the business decided to lean into the confusion. The owners obviously enjoy seeing their customers suffer.
26 Adam & Eve
This church decided to create a funny sign to hopefully draw attendees to their services. In the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve broke the rules by eating an apple from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Because of their actions, they were forever banished from the Garden.
But the church draws a comparison between this ancient act and something more of us can relate to: not reading the terms and conditions for our Apple devices. It seems ignoring official warnings is something outside the bounds of space and time.
27 99 Cent Plaza
99 cent stores generally offer tons of products for 99 cents or less. If you see a 99 cent store, you can assume that everything inside will be pretty cheap. But for the 99 Cent Plaza, it’s unclear just how much their products cost. It says “everything 99 cents or less,” but then the sign adds a confusing “& up.”
So, are there products that are more than 99 cents? If that’s the case, the 99 Cent Plaza isn’t exactly an effectively 99 cent store.
28 You Ugly
There’s something to be said for businesses that are completely confident in their abilities. That’s definitely the case at Wise Guys Haircuts. These barbers are confident in their ability to make you look good.
But if you don’t look good at the end of your service, it might just be your appearance, rather than their services.
29 Family-Owned Business
Family-owned businesses are sweet in theory, but difficult to manage in reality. Families tend to fight, and those disagreements can often find their way into the business. Instead of pretending that everything is peachy, this family-owned business decided to lean into the stereotype of bickering relatives.
Apparently, the family couldn’t even get their sign up without arguing. Thankfully, their ploy might just be funny enough to draw in some new customers.
30 No Purpose
Signs are generally put up to share some important piece of information. But in this case, this sign was put up for absolutely no reason. Rather than announcing something interesting to the public, this sign instead makes it clear that the field it’s placed in is not special whatsoever.
It doesn’t say it’s private property, but it also says it has no official use for the public. In other words, the sign is a completely unhelpful and superfluous statement.
31 Best Sausage Supper
Religion is not quite what it once was, but it is doubtful that the message conveyed by this sign from the St. Paul United Church of Christ is really the right one.
In any case, Pastor Thomas Ressler may be surprised at the number of followers this message will attract to his supper!
32 Drop Your Pants
This message is both truthful and funny at the same time.
How many pranksters have dropped their pants in this business, do you think?
33 Ikea Is Happy To Help
Ikea is known for the difficult-to-assemble furniture. Rather than trying to play off this fact, this billboard decided to embrace it.
Ikea knows its furniture is hard to assemble. They feel your pain because they can’t even manage to assemble their sign correctly.
34 All You Can Eat
When this sign says all you can eat, they really mean it.
In fact, they might just put your car on the menu—that’s how broad their food options are.
35 Supersized Jigsaw Puzzle
This advertiser saw an opportunity, and they immediately jumped on it.
A pile of rubble looks surprisingly like the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. While we doubt this rubble could actually be assembled into the White House, it’s still a clever advertising trick.
36 Duct Tape Does Everything
Duct tape can fix everything. In fact, duct tape can even keep this billboard standing.
With a sign like this, there’s no need for any further explanation about the benefits of duct tape. The billboard itself says it all.
37 Splitting Headache
This billboard gives the term “splitting headache” a whole new meaning.
If Tylenol can help this man with the wrecking ball in the middle of his head, it can certainly get rid of your small tension headache.
38 Spotify Gets Personal
Spotify decided to get quite personal in its advertising, calling out users who had listened to popular songs a bit too much.
While being lonely on Valentine’s Day is hard enough, it’s especially difficult when a billboard publicly calls out your sadness.
39 Strong Teeth
If you want strong teeth, you have to use this toothpaste. Apparently, Formula is strong enough to turn you into a billboard-eating machine.
Of course, that might do a bit of damage to your teeth, but at least you’ll know the toothpaste is working.
40 Real-Life Hot Wheels
What better way to advertise Hot Wheels than by turning a normal bridge into a Hot Wheels track?
Unfortunately, this track isn’t actually useful, which is a shame because it looks quite fun.
41 Human-Sized Fleas
This billboard uses the power of perspective to spark action. While fleas aren’t actually visible, the billboard creates the illusion of human-sized fleas to encourage you to get the right medicine for your dog.
Just looking at this ad has us feeling itchy. Get them off!
42 Accurate Weather Report
This ad is stunningly simple in its effect. While it offers a bit of perspective into the service—metservice.com—, it also does exactly what it promises: a real-time weather report.
If it’s sunny, the billboard will be sunny. If it’s rainy, the billboard will be rainy. Truly, it’s an almost genius advertising idea.
43 Cleans Pores
If you’re going to buy a face wash, you want to know that it effectively cleans your pores.
Thankfully, this billboard definitely gets that message across by showing a completely clean and clear pore. No, there won’t be a man physically cleaning your pores, but the visual is still satisfying.
44 Law & Order
If you’re going to create an effective ad, it’s best to use your surroundings to your advantage.
This Law & Order ad created a 3D look using a pole jutting out from behind the billboard. It certainly catches your attention.
45 Open At Night
Why say more when you can saw less? This McDonald’s ad didn’t even need to include the word “McDonald’s” because the golden arches are so recognizable.
Plus, they’re letting you know they’re open late, so you can go grab that late-night McFlurry any time.
46 Big Mac
According to this billboard, the Big Mac is so large that not even two billboards can contain it.
If you need a stomach-filling treat, this billboard definitely lets you know that the Big Mac should be on top of your list.
47 Sky On Sale
Obviously, no one can actually sell the sky. But selling cheap rides in an airplane is almost the same thing.
This clever advertising initiative lets you know that the sky can be yours, and it’s available for a discounted price!
48 Beware The Cold Mars Bar
This billboard is a combination of disturbing and hilarious. While it’s not great to imagine that your tongue might get stuck to a cold Mars bar, the billboard certainly catches your attention.
If there’s one message you should glean from this ad, it’s that you should be careful about licking a cold Mars bar.
49 Perfect Color Match
What better way to show off your color matching skills than to match the sky?
This clever billboard makes it look as though the painter found the perfect color match for the sky behind it. While it’s visually appealing, it’s also a good endorsement that has us wanting to go to Berger for our paint.
50 Share A Coke
Most Coca-Cola advertisements focus on the idea that Coke is meant to be shared.
Well, what better way to get the point across than to share a Coke with the surroundings billboards?
51 Six-Armed Goalie
Nothing is getting past this goalie. This billboard depicts Petr Cech, a goalie renowned for his incredible talent.
To show their support for Cech at the 2008 European Cup, Vienna, Austria put up this hilarious billboard, which finally explains how Cech manages to block every goal.
52 A Bright Idea
Once again, this billboard uses its surroundings to get its point across.
Without a person, the billboard is just a random lightbulb against a red background. But as soon as a person steps into the sweet spot, the billboard lets you know about the bright ideas found at The Economist.
53 Use Your Surroundings
Noodles & Company is apparently very confident in their recipes.
They’re so confident, in fact, that they took the risk that all the cars in this parking lot would be less unique than their bowls of noodles. From what we can see, it looks like their advertising campaign worked out.
54 Cut Down On Traffic
This sign is truly an ingenious way to encourage drivers in Mumbai to take public transportation. If you’re driving quickly, there’s no way you’d have time to stop and read this sign.
But if you’re stuck in annoying traffic, you have all the time in the world to read about why you really should have taken public transportation.
55 Dropped Calls
This advertisement really leans into the visual representation of what Cingular is selling.
Let’s hope the “calls” portion of the sign wasn’t dropping on any unsuspecting passerby.
56 Perfect Climbing Shoes
What better way to advertise a shoe than with a super-sized version of the boot atop a billboard?
What’s more, these particular shoes are actually made for climbing. If they can climb to the top of a billboard, they can surely help you climb to the top of a mountain.
57 The Perfect Living Room
Ikea furniture can truly help you create the perfect living space.
But instead of just asking that you take their word for it, Ikea decided to create a 3D version of the perfect living room on top of a billboard. Now, you just have to find out which pieces of furniture they used so you can buy it for yourself.
58 Stolen Slice
How do you demonstrate just how good your pizza is? If you’re Donatos, you have the model on the nearby billboard steal a slice.
If this model can’t even keep her hands off the pizza, you know it has to be good.
59 Strong Cement
This billboard says a lot by saying practically nothing. Apparently, their cement is strong enough to stop an airplane in its tracks.
We don’t know when you would need to stop an airplane, but it’s nice to know you can get strong cement from Indocement.
60 Creepy Hand
Blink and you might just miss the true creepiness of this billboard.
Heineken is so good even the billboard can’t resist reaching out to grab it.
61 Too Good Not To Eat
These workers were supposed to be putting up a billboard of a super-sized chocolate bar. But the Cadbury chocolate was just too good, and they stopped their jobs to eat it.
Obviously, the workers are fake, but the billboard easily gets the point across—Cadbury is too good not to eat.
62 Don’t Tailgate
There’s nothing like a billboard to show you the true disaster of not being safe on the road.
If you don’t want to end up like these two cars, you definitely shouldn’t tailgate.
