Ad Council PSA confuses wasted NYU students.
(kiosk on Broadway @ Bond St.)
The Ad Council, the leading producer of Public Service Advertisements, is a magical place where otherwise sinful ad agencies come together to DO SOME GOOD. About ten years ago, I worked on a mildly interesting PSA TV spot called "Drugs Don't Work"—which addressed the issue of lost profits due to employees working while high. After finishing the spot, my boss and I got stoned in his office (true story).
Which brings me to this PSA. "Buzzed" can mean on the way to being drunk. But to me, it means, firstly, baked from smoking marijuana. To others, it connotes being high from cocaine. Or crank. Or E. Or caffeine. Also, doesn't that depend on exactly how buzzed I am, officer? So confusing. I need vodka.
previously in NYC kiosk ads:
1. No, you're a bad ad trapped in a phone kiosk.
2. "Oh give me a home, where dead, stuffed antelope wear sweaters..."
3. You don't have a mouth, Ketel One phone kiosk. You can't 'say' anything.
4. Today's lesson: The 'C' words.
