Furry Slippers...

Has anyone seen that stupid Colgate ad where an annoying woman with ludicrously white teeth talks about having furry slippers on her teeth?

I have a proposal that advertising executives will be subject to a 3 strikes rule. If they ever come up with 3 ads deemed to be crap anytime in their career, they get shipped off to a gulag in Siberia or on the moon. You could also play their ads over and over to them for the rest of their lives.

I give them three chances as some ads do provide some entertainment and are deserving of some praise.

And if you think these ad execs will be lonely in Siberia or on the moon, they will be joined by politicians, lawyers, used car salespeople and real estate agents who do not get any chances before banishment. Maybe we could have a Minority Report styled police squad that as soon as a kid says he wants be any of the above professions he/she gets shipped off to the gulag straight away.
