Butt Kicking Nutcracker Ad Too Violent to Run
Some clients just don't have a sense of humor.
Rejected Magazine AD
Client: Spokane Symphony Orchestra.
Agency: Wendt Advertising.
Art Director: Carl Heidle. Writer: Tim Putnam. ACD: Cathy Wimmers.
Cause of Death: The ad was designed to run in a magazine targeting kids. The client contact loved it, but the Symphony's Board of Directors felt the ad promoted violence, and gave it the boot. [via Ad Graveyard
