AIDS day banner tells it like it is - you can display it on your site.

All you fine folks who have blogs or websites of your own, and would like to honor World Aids day tomorrow should have a look at this banner put together by the viewropa posse. The banner itself will only appear at every 157th time the banner its called, mirroring the number of people who have the AIDS virus on the planet, yes that's right, 1 in 157 people carry the virus.

Go here for complete instructions and code to place on your page. All who use the banners, thank you, much appreciated, the more who use them, the more that see them (the more calls the banner gets, the more often that 157 number shows up).

ASABAILEY Ogilvy stunt jumps the shark twice over

Adgrunt extraordinaire Caffeinegodess has like so many other ad bloggers, gotten a self promotional email from ASABAILEY.COM. They are flogging their prank the Ogilvy hijack yet again, this time they managed to get an interview in PR Week, looks like they're milking this stunt for ten times more than it's worth.
Seems ASABAILEY can't tell their arse from their elbow though, even online which should be their forté as Caffeinegoddess noted that they brag in the interview about their superior online placing skills saying "How did we get the Ogilvy & Mather out? We got someone independent to do it for us. They sent it to Ad Rants and blablabla. Right. It's plain to see that Cup of Java , TextURL , Researcher and a bunch more ad obsessed blogs with ad obsessed readers covered it on November 6, Adrants covered it Sunday the 7th.

The diabolic Diebold campaign

Leslie has stumbled upon a campaign of spoof ads for Diebold that are pretty amusing. Rand Careaga made these spoofs, starting with the lovely Stalin image and quote. After two days of ideabusting Rand is pretty much done, but you might have more ideas?
Tlevitz has already suggested some copy corrections; I'd take my red pen to the word 'can' in "We can deliver the vote." And add Ohio between The and Vote ... in crude red handlettering.. If this was your brief, and you had to follow Bernbachian rules of speaking the truth, what would you do?

CityBanks Freudian Slip (literally)

Citybank may have been a tad too honest when they wrote thier latest pamphlets. Usually there's some alphanumeric goobidygook printed at the bottom, but not on this one. "CON-ALL-10/04". Finally, some truth in advertising.
