Deceiving Billboard Ads – Part I


Browsing through my optical illusion collection, I found out I have dozens of cool billboard ads that I never published on Mighty Optical Illusions homepage. Most of them are deceiving, but few are just cool innovative thinking. Either way, I wanted to share them with you in this post. You can find dozen of them inside, and further hundreds can be found in billboards category. This collection is Part I, and I’ll be posting Part II soon! Comment which one you liked the best, and which one you didn’t like. Don’t miss some other transparent billboards in transparent category. Enjoy!

    haha, those are all great. i love the one with the lightbulb

    • happydoodle

      yeah the lightbulb one is cool, but the “kill bill” one is kinda creepy.

  • nincubus

    pretty cool ahaha, I loved the first one, the one with the black stain that goes away.

    • Rose

      The text is spanish, but I think its a billboard for a detergent

    most of these are cool i liked the bilboard one the best!!!

  • Tony the Tiger

    This stuff is pretty cool :)

  • me

    wow-some of them are so cool, they look photoshopped! i dont get the first one…..stainproof shirts?

  • Tori

    I love those! I just don’t get the ones with the guy and girl on cell phones, trying the get each other’s attention. If someone could explain that to me, that would great. I really love the first one!

    I think its that one of them is like in jail, and depending on how you look at it you can’t tell which. or amybe its not a jail at all, and they both just look the same relative to each other from either side.

  • Liberate

    That’s cool!

    w00t those were awesome!! I really liked the one that looked like a hole in the ground

  • Foxx

    I love the bus one, especially if the company is sponsored by duracell

  • Wouter

    @me no a washing stuff, you put in your washing machine.
    sale asie de facile means somthing like it’s that simple.

    the last one is espacialy great but i dont seem to understand the one before the last, with the phoning people

  • Anonymous

    Actually, “Sale así de fácil” roughly means “goes out that easy”, in Spanish.
    I bet that’s in Argentina.
    My faves are the train car one and the elevator one, but they’re all good :)

  • Eshita

    Cool staff. Didn’t get the girl with the mascara one. Are they two different pictures? Also the talking people. I think the people with the phones are pictures on glass tiles.

  • xprodoksit

    yes its very good ;)

  • Anonymous

    the one with the guy and the girl is a revolving door.

  • Anonymous

    Those were cool

    if you look at the background, its the not the same. it blends in like a normal setting would. So I think its the same people… ?

    i dont really like the knife one becuz what if it fell off & hit sumthing? i love the other ones.

  • avin

    the one with two person on the cellphone… that ad’s from Singapore, its not a cellphone but the guy’s in jail… for drug abuse, the idea is to target the family members who are the real victim of drug abuser…

  • Red.

    I like the knife one, it gives a different perspective really well.

    I really don’t get the one of the face on the bag. Explain anyone?

    These are all brilliant.

  • Anonymous

    the one with the ppl on the phones is that both of the ppl are talking on phones but it looks like on is on the phone and the other is pressing on the glass one and vice versa. get it?

  • Anonymous

    Good stuff! The one that says “Sale asi de facil” it’s endeed from Argentina, in fact if you look behind the ad, it appears another ad that says Topacio, that’s a furniture brand here in Argentina
    PS: I’m from Argentina =)

    really cool
    but i dont understand the 7venth are they in an airplane, or in a restaurant or what is that..:?

  • pirategirl

    all of these are awesome!!! my fav is the knife splitting the light. its really realistic.

  • Rose

    omg i gotta have that bag! love it!

  • qwertyuiopasdfghjklzxcvbnm

    Ha! Kill Bill! I like that one!

    LOL :)

  • Danger Machine

    haha thoae are really cool and funny! I like the one where it looks like a knife is chopping the lamp post in half!

  • Rebecca

    The light bulb one is my favorite… and the first one with the shirt…

  • Anonymous

    The one after the light bulb is updside down. Looks like maybe an aisle in a train? I cannot tell if the faces are on a ‘billboard’ or if its just a mirrored strip on the ceiling.

  • Torster12

    Hahaha, I love the Kill Bill Elevator!

  • InfernoX8Hatake

    (To red)
    The bag one is supposed to represent a person and you’re holding him by his hair (via the straps that tighten the bag.)

  • Tyne-Zimmerman

    Yes, the 7th one (the one after the lightbulb) is upside-down. If you flip it back rightside-up, it looks like just a mirror on the ceiling of a train/plane. Are you sure it’s an ad?

  • underrated

    the poster of the guy and the girl is not a revolving door. it’s an ad post with two sides. the ad’s for an Anti-Drug Campaign in Singapore. hope this helped. love the site! =)

  • y-man

    So, what about number 7 then? It’s just plain old reflection (It is most definetely the Thalys-train by the way). Is a mirror considered to be an optical illusion, or is there some hidden message here?

  • Anonymous

    i like ligtbulb 1

  • Anonymous

    Those were pretty neat.

  • Susi

    They’re all great. I like the one with the knife most. It looks as if the lamp was cut by it.
    By the way: Great site!

  • I really liked this post. Can I copy it to my site? Thank you in advance.

  • ooos

    Didn’t get the mascara girl one >.<"

  • Stereo Vision ?

    The one with the people on the phone, maybe it’s it’s a stereo vision trick? I have never been able to actually do this but if you look at the left image with your left eye and the right image with your right eye, the two images should merge. Maybe they’re supposed to be kissing.

  • ALex98777

    The 7th one is a bus add. It’s advertising a restaurant see. So you look up, and see people eating at the restaurant. AT least i’m pretty sure it is.

  • ALex98777

    OOps I meant a train advertisement! Not bus.

  • ferret
