I was just reading a story on the Newsweek website, comparing the Iraq war to the movie Deliverance. (Thank you Mr. Moose Wash, for passing it along.)
As I fiddled with the type size on the website, I noticed a gross ad for Triactive acne solution. In it was a giant picture of a chin with two inflamed pimples on it.
This ad did not inspire me to consider my own potentially pathological acne problem. Nor did it do Newsweek any favors. I immediately shut down the screen tab because I was so grossed out.
Bad decision-making to both the makers of Triactive (whoever they are) and the apparently desperate marketing people at Newsweek.com.
