From tampons in your cereal box to a half an hour apology from Skittles, the ACD duo come together to highlight some of their recent funny favourites
We like to say that 'If you can be funny, you should be funny', and while every brand’s 'funny' is different, there’s always an opportunity for a smile and a laugh if you look hard enough for it.
