Bud 'FFDD Receding Pinky Syndrome'
Budweiser launches two faux-PSAs via multicultural agency Dieste Harmel Partners with director David Merhar of Sandwick Films that make cocktail sippers aware of a new syndrome-- Fou Fou Drink Disorder, or FFDD. Among the side effects are Mini-Mouth Syndrome, a result of using tiny cocktail straws, as well as Receding Pinky Syndrome, an atrophy of the fifth finger that happens when not clenching a particular malt beverage. To add to any concern that may arise, the medical information specialists in the lab monitoring the results note that the "epidemic" may affect FFDD sufferers in as little as three days.
