Stumbling through the web I found this review over at Slate: Why we say yes to drugs which reviews This Is Your Country on Drugs: The Secret History of Getting High In America., and I stopped in my tracks because i love that cover. America will never shake those "This is your brain on drugs" frying egg ads. Though personally I prefer the Partnership for a Drug-Free America: Heroin where the woman goes nuts smashing the eggs and everything else.
Big thanks to the Perlorian Brothers who totally made my morning by spotting adland in the New York Times, even if it just a teeny link to the Clorox Machines History commercial, we love seeing our URL near anything Mad Men. ;) The Perlorian Brothers rock, my favorite ad that they have done is probably the multi-award winning Vim Prison Visitor which cracks me up to this day.
