Army, Ad Council Push Merits of Education with Badly Written Manifesto

boostup.jpg

The Army/Ad Council Boost Up effort skyrockets in our ratings of deserved abuse with this awkwardly-phrased, melodramatic, grammatically awful and typo-ridden explanation for Boost Up's mission.

We're sure they're sincere in suggesting that inside every one of us is a graduate. But clearly a high school graduate does not a good editor make. Well, guess that's what the military - er, college - is for.

"Some of us think we can be."

Well, that seems pretty clear to me. The campaign is targeted at existentialist dropouts.

yes, the work leaves much to be desired. especially a proofreader. but is adrants really the one to be dissing others over typos? :)

Hey now, nobody can accuse us of pushing the merits of higher education.

Wonder why the US Army is so keen for high school educated cannon fodder.
I guess they are desperate to fill the ranks for their next 'surge' into someone else's country to steal their oil.

Since when does AdRants go around proofing crap-ass sites? Does this really constitute ad news?
