Code Word Gets Ten Percent Off Weed

In the LA Weekly, an ad for The Farmacy promises to give ten percent off the purchase of "medical marujuana" to anyone who uses the code word "Got Medicine." Don't everyone storm the place at once.

Purell Eases The Dreaded Public Restroom Ick Factor

It happens on those long road trips with six of your best friends on the way to a river rafting trip in the middle of nowhere. It happens on those long car rides with the family heading to grandma's house. It happens when you're in the middle of a six hour drive to visit your girlfriend whom you haven't seen in a week and can't wait to jump on top of her the second you see her. It happens when you find yourself on the seedier side of the city. Yes. The dreaded public restroom. Covered in filth. Infested with flies. Dimly lit like a scene out of a horror movie. We've all been though the experience of tiptoeing around the restroom taking extra care not to touch anything. For women, there's the aerial pee position. This commercial for Purell puts you smack in the middle of this nightmare.

Ad Women of Excellence Honored, Stupid But Fun Awards Needed

jeansguy.jpg

Well, it seems everyone's got some kind of award for something in this industry. It must be all that childhood self esteem training run amok and rearing its ugly head in adulthood. Anyway, Boards magazine is honoring woman "who have made significant creative and business contributions to the international advertising and commercial production communities." They will be highlighted in the magazine's September issue as well as at a celebration in New York.

Hmm. With all this intelligence on display, maybe Adrants should launch something a bit less intense such as, oh, the Hottest Men of Advertising or Advertising Agencies' Most Beautiful Women or a Cannes Six Pack And Racks Contest. Oh but wait, that would make the outside world think we're even bigger buffoons than those hipsterific folks over at Agency.com. It sure would be fun though. Anyone interested?

YoungGuns Cures Tired Creatives In Preparation For Award Show

The YoungGuns International Advertising Awards group is up to their insightful foolery again to promote the organization's upcoming award show. The site offers creatives who worked themselves to the bone with a multitude of tests and therapies such as a downloadable phlegm test, a Haemorrhoids chart and information on ulcers. There's a nurse to help creatives thourgh the process and there even...who knew...a call for entries form in their too. Witty.
