Lottery Tickets in WA are Limited. Swallow Yours


This pair of new Washington lottery ads by by Publicis, Seattle highlights the power of human ingenuity when it comes to finding hiding places for important items.

Watch a woman (who looks a lot like this non-woman) retrieve her boss' ticket from down his throat. And watch this dude slam his cast into hard objects.

Come on, guys. Reality has given us plenty of better scenarios. Where's the guy shoving the ticket in his ass along with the coke rock? Where's the series of wild-eyed bandits cutting open the livers of (apparently) sleeping children?

Do it like you mean it!

enticing the purchase of a lottery ticket with the extreme behavior in these spots with respect to gambling and thereby promting gambling addiction reminds me of the alcohol dependency spots a few years ago with unshaven shaking consumers dying for a LITE beer being featured in dramatic comedic extemes?

Is product placement of tobacco products and constant images of their abuse any less evil on cable TV?

I guess all three compete against each other in terms of whose product can measurably create the most extreme psychological destruction with the help of superb advertising.
