"Don't waster your time..." Toilet Paper Origami Ads for Kellog's All-Bran Plus cereal by Leo Burnett, Dubai, UAE. I know they are a little grade school in their humor but I laughed a bit when I first saw them.

Honda del Sol (circa 1994) that has been completely outfitted to match Luke’s X-Wing from A New Hope. From the accurately detailed R2 unit in the back to the side mounted guns with laser burns scorching the car near the tips, this is clearly the work of some mad genius.
