IAB Unleashes Best-Ever Description of Awards Show

iab_mixx_awards_2013.png

It's out. Are you on the list? Yes, IAB is out with its list of 2013 MIXX Awards finalists. But before we get to the list, we simply have to share with you this marble-mouthed, buzzword bingo-laden description of the awards from IAB EVP and CMO David Doty who said, "IAB MIXX Awards are a vibrant compass and a revealing canvas for illustrating the expansion of the present boundaries of interactive marketing as they push into new creative and technological territory."

WTF? And that's not the end of it. He went on to say, "The 'white heat' generated by the nexus of campaign strategies, creative innovations, and consumer engagement makes this year's awards shine brighter than ever. And while the 2013 IAB MIXX Awards celebrate outstanding achievement in digital marketing and advertising from the past year, they are really about pivoting to the future and unveiling the next iteration of creative online excellence."

Holy shit! Are we recognizing ads or are we honoring the development of a disease-free, Elysium-like world on which everyone, including the losers left below on Earth, are forever saved?

Christ, we are so self-important sometimes. Anyway...
