Today's ads that'll make art directors touch their genitals.

(click ads, via) Hands below desks, ADs—it's that time again. Fuck wordy copywriters, right? The ads kinda work!—Alka-Seltzer pH balances your stomach, right? But I actually dislike them. I don't really know why? Maybe it's the usurping of Taoist philosophy by an evil pharmaceutical company? Maybe it's the kinda ugly two-color artwork? Maybe I'm jealous? Maybe I didn't get enough love as a child? No matter, I don't like them. Ad agency: BBDO Guatemala.

What's an under-inflated ballon and a jug of shaving foam got to do with upset stomachs?
