Re: No such thing as bad publicity?
I quite liked the Pepsi ad. Sure was corny, staged, artificial, unrealistic nonsense, but I did not expect anything but that from an ad. I certainly wasn't outraged or offended. Likewise McD's Dead Dad ad.
I think ad companies should just ignore the barking mob which chooses to be offended and the me toos wanting to tell people how they should think. I do not want to be told when I should take offence.
