The Greatest Movie Ever Sold

Coming up: Morgan Spurlock, he of "Supersize Me" fame, takes a look at the advertising industry.

This was brought to my attention by an article in Relevant Magazine (click here).

I have a healthy distaste for the industry, mostly because of the loud, in-your-face nature of TV ads (I reluctantly succumbed to ads on the blog to help pay the bills. Not that it's working). This documentary promises to be fascinating. I'm particularly interested in the round-table meetings with the advertisers, as these are the folks who have decided that dads are doofus' whose only interests are cars, trucks and beer, and that pre-pubescent girls need padded push-up swim suits.
