Adland’s version of holiday howlers

It’s the height of the holiday season, when you can get yourself into all sorts of trouble by not speaking the language.

With which tenuous link here are some funny language school ads, Babbel (from Wieden+Kennedy presumably) and, surprisingly, perhaps the venerable Berlitz, founded way back in 1878. Some of its ads seem to date from almost that vintage but never mind.

Interesting that so many feature Germans.

Particularly like the ‘Mayday’ one (halfway through). Don’t miss the first one though.
