Suicide prevention "Bridge of life" did not increase suicides by 600%

10Mag.com recently ran with the headline The Suicide Prevention Measures That INCREASED Suicide Attempts by 600%.

Miami Ad School students jump on bandwagon that was driven by real client.

Miami Ad School Students Gabriella Rodriguez and Stephen Kent jumped on the reality show "social conversation" to create user-inspired reality show posters like the two you see above.
If you want to see the rest, go to Worst Reality Shows.

I'm not sure why you'd bother. This idea already done, by a PBS affiliate. And the idea actually advertised the PBS station. Imagine that!

As ad students you probably could have spent five minutes to do the same. Hell, I should hope so.

GoTV press ad a lot like Adland's logo.

I was just going to add this to the archive, with the headline: "Over 30 channels to choose from. GOtv. A multichoice Company."
But then, I can't help myself! Congratulations Noah's Ark Creative in Lagos, Nigeria. You've created an entire press ad from the same idea that is our logo. You've been badlanded. Sorry, had to be done. :) You know what they say though, the simplest ideas are the best.
