You know, I always thought that. Out last-minute voting and not sure what to give that undecided friend in your life? LOGO can help with a Rick and Steve
video digisode about Sarah Palin, featuring those lovable characters Kirsten and Dana. (Not Steve 'Adrants' Steve by the way but another Steve.)
Sarah Palin wins herself a copywriting credit in The Best of Sarah Palin,* a charming collection of her brightest moments in the spotlight.
Gotta love that look on Vlad Putin's face. "Pray for that!"

Pop Quiz. Home Work. Cutting Corners. Viral Video. Famous Mommies. Cleaning Craze.BVlogger to the Rescue. Life After Breast Canver. Spelling Quiz. From Cute to Creepy. Huh? What?
It's MomTourage. Yup. Another iVillage creation that pays homage to HBO's Entourage. Tangential to Zima's Mom Your Ride, this one's all about the power of mom and her posse. Complete with the best wheels, the best seats and...spit up in their hair, these moms use their clout, score dates and the "primo" tables.
They've even got Turtle.
Adrants reader Molly sent us a spot in which JFK is reanimated and his words altered to promote sustainable energy technology.
CG technology was used to "remodel JFK's mouth word for word," according to the pressie. Produced by AKQA with help from The Ambassadors/Amsterdam for Greenpeace, it debuted last Monday at a press briefing in Berlin.
What if today's campaign tactics were applied to the election of 1860?
Crazed by this Presidential race, ad bloggers Make the Logo Bigger and Jetpacks ponder this question. Here's the fruit of their labours, "paid for by Friends of Douglas."
Contemporary context gave history both personality and a face. We laughed, we cried, we wondered -- ever so briefly -- what could have been.
Indentured servitude for me? Plantation micro-management for Steve? (Well, I guess one could argue that slavery was on its way out, even without that wee shove we dubbed the Reconstruction.) Propaganda aside, just how big of a deal is an election, anyway?
Follow this logic. Groups such as Adbusters, Billboard Liberation Front, The Bubble Project, Banksy and Graffiti Research Lab hate advertising. So what do these groups do to share their distaste for the horrific practice known as advertising? They create more advertising to advertise their distaste for, yes, advertising.
Watch this five minute video and revel in its twisted logic and idiotic blatherings as it trys to apply logic to the illogical, passion to the
Colorado's Department of Public Health and Environment uses the image of a coffin nail to declare, "The Cigarette is Dead!"
"Today, cigarette smoking has not only become passe due to all we've learned about its health effects, but, plainly speaking, it's become a difficult behavior to keep," gushes a press release with the undaunted conviction of a fourth-grade graduate of DARE.
"The days when smoking was socially acceptable are over!" (Zeal added by us.)
Football is for girls. That's right. It's for girls who are more concerned with how they look on the field then how they play. Hmm. Thank God there are still parts of the world in which sexism and political incorrectness reign supreme. If it weren't for the Czech Republic, we wouldn't have rugby.
Cause groups, send your complaints to Mather Communications.
As if it were in danger of becoming extinct...oh wait, it is, the National Blue Foundation is out with a couple of videos that attempt to illustrate a world in which blues does not exist. OK, the videos are fun but, seriously, does anyone listen to the blues anymore? OK, OK...apologies to the two of you that still do but really, Was Mick Jagger the best they could come up with?

Hot damn. As November 4 nears and political ads grow increasingly more negative, MoveOn.org -- which has a knack for instigating a fight -- whips out its own ammo.
Non-voters are the target. This faux news video can be customized to include the name of any potential non-voter. Plug your name in to see it defamed across Facebook, in church marquees and among angry middle-aged protesters. (It's a surprisingly heady sensation. This must be how Heather Mills feels every single day.)
Aside from that sidebar about McCain bombing goats, the best part is when George W. Bush thanks you for your service. I think it gave me hypertension.
