must admit that this campaign forced me to visit the Onion site and check what it is. Must admit that still feel as a stupid not being sure whether i understand this campaign or idea behind the site. But one thing i am sure – this graphic layout is awesome! Bingo.

Hilarious campaign for this newspaper.

I find some of these a bit forced.

The problem is, the Onion is funnier than their ads. They would have been better if they had written them themselves.

These don't live up to the Onion. And aren't nearly as funny as the series the Martin Agency did.

5+ years later, I remember some of the Martin Agency's lines. I forgot what this one said in the time it took to scroll down.

Our stories are politically correct. Except the ones about retards.

For only as much as it would cost to feed a starving Ethiopian, you can buy this shirt. (ad selling onion shirts)

Not to mention the fact they're scam ads. Does anyone believe someone at the Onion picked up the phone one day and called them to do some ads? Does anyone believe the Onion paid them to do these ads?
