Have you no scruples?

I just saw a spot for some pharma product called Pataday--it sounds a bit like a Thai dish--but I think it's for itchy eyes. Hands down this spot wins an Ad Aged "Worstie," mostly because they've chosen to animate a self-portrait of Van Gogh, changing his expression from a frown to a smile.

How dare they? Is nothing sacred?

This is Van Gogh. Not spokes-art for drug pushers.

I bet the reason Van Gogh smiles in that ad is because getting Mona Lisa to do a convincing belly laugh was taking too much K size in the banner.
