Funny radio ads?

Yes, funny radio ads! Get ready for 15 great ones. Funny radio commercials – the ones that make you “laugh your ads off” – stand out from the mundane crowd, make the audience fall in love with your brand, and improve the overall radio listening experience. So please turn your volume up for these funny radio ads, written or co-written by Walt Jaschek and produced by Paul Fey, both experts in funny radio. If you’re in the advertising, promo or radio biz, they also serve as good radio copywriting, acting and production examples. Most importantly: we hope they inspire more of the same.
