Public Speaking Course: 

Ads 

When you take my public speaking course you will learn a fun skill, which is how to incorporate ads into your presentation. You can create your own fake ads (see mockups), or find real ads that are funny and will work for your particular presentation. You can project your ads on screen, read them aloud or distribute them as handouts to your audience.

You should always be on watch for great, funny ads that relate to your presentation topic or your audience in magazines and newspapers. You will learn how to accumulate these types of ads during your public speaking course.

Jay Leno, a funny entertainer who is widely known for his comedy style has a series of books called Headlines I, II, and III. Besides being a collection of funny headlines from newspapers and magazines, the books have lots of blooper advertisements along with commentary from Jay. One of my favorites was of a funeral monument company that advertised a lifetime replacement guarantee. 

You can read these out loud to your audience without worrying about copyright infringement as long as you always attribute the source. You don't want to claim material as your own if you did not create it. Giving proper credit to the author is important for you to understand in your public speaking course.

*Be careful not to violate copyrights, remember you are a professional public speaker, who knows how to "break the rules" but always obey the law.
