  • Mood:

Advertising at its worst best

The Australian Broadcasting Corp. is running what is apparently a weekly poll/contest wherein two ad companies create fake TV spots that sell the "unsellable" and viewers pick the one that most convinces them.

Past topics include:
  • Promoting Baghdad as a vacation spot
  • Promoting the return of child labor
  • Making Australian Democrats electable
  • Making celibacy sexy

(If you're running Firefox with Noscript, you have to allow abc.co.au's scripts to see the videos' links.)
