Badvertising Part II

In this blog’s (much) younger days (as in, 7 years ago), I wrote about ridiculous advertising practices. ¬†In that post, I mused about how ironic it was that I was writing a post slamming various advertising tactics when we had just gotten finished approving the final draft of our own very first advertising campaign.
