Fake Ad, The Video

Update: Well this is *odd*. The video, which we grabbed from Creativity (link below), isn’t working. It works on their site, but not on ours.

Update 2:
AdLand graciously provided a working version.

Creativity has a video up (above) which DDB denies they made, according to AdAge. Fine. We’ll leave you to buy that or not. Meantime, DogNPony has some good ideas about how to stop fake ads from being entered into shows. The general idea: ban offending agencies and credited employees from entering that show again for like, ever.
