Modernista Promotes Own Layoffs, Continental Advertises Crash

modernista_layoffs_google.jpg

- Oops. Modernista!'s crazy website which isn't really a site but an application that points people to other sites that have written something about the agency is now finding it's "site" touting the agency's recent layoffs.

- Oops. Continental Airlines plane crashes. CNN writes story. Continental Airlines ad shows up right beside story. Classic contextual advertising fuckery. When will someone figure this shit out?

- Oops. The fake Denny's Nannerpus ad is better than the real...uh...originally fake Nannerpus ad. Confused?

- Oops. Overstock.com is selling Illusion's rape simulation video game.

- Oops. The economy sucks. Everyone's drinking. Everyone's having sex. But ads still suck.

Steve,

Who's drinking? Who's having sex? Not me! I'm just trying to stay afloat and hope companies start to spend again. We do agree that the ads still suck.

Keep raising the bar, maybe some of these F'ers will catch it in the throat...

I'm so glad that Modernista's "website" backfired on them. It was too clever, and I was jealous that I didn't get to do it first.

The rape game is awful. The state of prime time ads is awful. Direct response ad production values are awful...

Thank god for Nannerpus.

Steve, that's the best fucking post you've done all year... OK, it's only Feb. I'll bet Angela did it, right?

Cheers/George
