With a horde of dudes dressed like advertising staples such as Mr. Clean, McGruff the Crime Dog and Smokey Bear on hand to watch, this year’s icon honors went to the AOL Running Man and the Budweiser Clydesdales while favorite slogan winners were “Like a Good Neighbor, State Farm is There” and “Virginia is For Lovers” from the Virginia Board of Tourism.
