Surprise and humour are powerful tools in converting awareness into interest, and interest into desire – all in keeping with the classic AIDA model. And here is one of my favourite examples (ever), a brilliantly executed teaser.
Open magazine. Browse. Come to a page on the right as below:

This is brilliant. The name SL3 fits perfectly with the colours of the ad – Mercedes silver. Even the font looks like the corporate Mercedes font. The teaser page has you expecting sports luxury from a car. Only to be surprised by sports luxury in a shoe.
Top points for creativity.
