Adland - all the adnews not fit to print.
Every year, the amount of ads that are banned or pulled seem to rise. British regulators are too quick to ban complain ad agency heads and creatives in the UK.
In Sweden - liberal land of the free - more ads are banned as they are discriminating against women. Though nudity isn't always the reason ads are banned - sometimes humour is.

You thought inhaling large amounts of marker pen or spraymount, and getting a paper cut was the only hazards of adgrunts life as a student. You soon discover that alcholism and broken family lives are another due to the hours.
Well count yourself lucky - in Brazil, admen get kidnapped on a regular basis.
The electronic age has swept through the workplace without much resistance from employees, many of whom do not even remember a time without email and instant messaging.
Just how much technology is too much is the question Hasbro ponders in a spot for its platinum edition electronic board games, from agency Jordan McGrath Case &

Apparently, no one can bear the annoying "go on, go on, go on" Mrs Doyle from the Inland revenue tax ads, but wish she would just go away go away go away...

Aaah, bless Graphis, for I have in my lap a complete drool package or books I shall review, and then give away in the usual adland recycle style - we don't keep our review books here. But you'll have to work for it. ;-)

It is not easy pulling together the top top TV Ads in America and presenting them on your website. We should know we have be collecting TV Ads for 27 years. It is impossible to do this for free. USATVADS charges for its services Ad Critic didn't.
Melanie Blatt used a 'stunt bum' in TV advert.
She stars in an advert featuring drunken workers at an office party photocopying their body parts.
But the bottom seen in the advert for Virgin Mobile does not belong to the former All Saint, instead it belongs to an "unknown model".
For those of you already suffering from severe adcritic withdrawel I might recommend watching Swedish TV commercials at the site called http://www.kaminsky.nu.
Lots and lots of quite surreal, good and bad films to go through. Widen your broadband experience with foreign commercials. No subtitles - often the joke is international and in some cases the dialougue is in English. Do not click on the non-existent read more link - there is no more to read.
ps - they also have trailers.
