Advertising: Funny? Donald Duck is funny...

In the world of marketing and advertising, there's often a misconception that effective advertising simply needs to be enjoyable. Simply needs to be funny. Serious marketers understand that creating powerful advertising involves more than just being funny. On our floor, we often hear: "Funny, funny? Donald Duck is funny."

That's what we find funny...
