A Treasure Trove of Great, Weird Advertising Characters Flickr pool celebrates odd brand mascots

The Flickr group Weird Advertising Characters is misleadingly named. It should be called Awesome Advertising Characters, because every single picture in here is a winner. Whoever came up with Cheesus is due for some kind of design prize or presidential commendation, and the "Poo! Poo!" Whoopie Cushion graphic is a timeless piece of Americana, right up there with baseball and heart disease. Well, OK, I guess the Clown Motel is kinda weird, but it's probably no worse than any other unfranchised roadside hotel. More images after the jump. Via Laughing Squid.
