(click ad) I hate posting depressing insidery ad ads, but this one, scanned from today's MediaWeek hawking entries for next year's CLIO Awards, is just so extra exceptionally fucking depressing. "Do something that still means everything" coaxes the copy underneath the fairly young dead mad man. Ad awards shows these days, what with the fucked economy and increase in scam ad winners and disgusting bootlicking, are an embarrassment. And the CLIOs, lest we forget, have an especially embarrassing history. For a more honest advertising awards show ad, view this ANDYs one from 2006 featuring creatives sucking each other's asses.
