Hey look—print ads for Wikipedia.

(click ads, via) Via the Slovak Republic. Well, Jimmy Wales just finished with one of his annoying on-site I'm staring at you banner ad fund drives, so maybe he's now going to waste your donations on creatively-suspect ads worldwide—starting in Slovakia! Or, possibly, these are scam ads, the main clue being you don't break the brand name in the copy? The ads are on the agency website. Ad agency: Jandl in Bratislava.

Oh, god. I got so sick of Jimmy Wales trying to HYPMOTIZE me in the FASE with his EYES that I almost donated to wikileaks. Perhaps that was the idea? "If you donate, he will disappear!"

Calm down! We made all this work for free, Jandl agency has covered all the costs for production. Those are regular ads printed in some magazines for the czech and slovak versions of wikipedia. In the original copy the brand name is not broken. Have a nice day!
