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.
