Ok, so I don't really want to use this blog as a soap box, but I saw something today that made me giggle like a little girl. Then I got kind frustrated when I thought about the misappropriation of funds and the slew of misinformation that was involved. Thing is, this spot would work really well as an anti-drinking ad, but it works horribly as an anti-pot ad. I cringe to think of the people who were involved with concepting and creating these ads. While I would like to think that it was a room full of stuffy old people full of misinformation, it was probably full of people that resembled me and the other people at my school. Which brings up a stranger side of ethics in advertising: is it unethical to use lies to keep people off illegal drugs? Anyway, when you watch the spot below, think to yourself, "Is it weed or alcohol that usually leads to this type of behavior?"
