#8: Great advertisements/public announcements

I often spend my train rides trying to figure out the meaning of the advertisements/public announcements.  Many times they are straightforward and easy to figure out the message (even when one is illiterate).  

But often times, I look at the posters and have no idea what the advertisement is about or there is just a really interesting/strange way of attracting people to the advertisement - not ones you would normally see in the U.S.  There are usually include cute animals or beautiful girls.

Sometimes the are funny because there are issues with English translation.

Here are some posted here at train stations.  I need to take pictures of more, because they are great.
