"In an effort to raise the individual American's awareness of and interest in advertising, the National Advertising Board launched a $32 million 'Advertising: Get The Message!' campaign in major markets across the country Monday. 'From lifesaving drugs to new diet beverages, advertising keeps you informed about the products and services you want to buy,' a spokeswoman said in a 30-second spot titled 'Keep An Eye Out For Ads.' 'But advertising can't work for you if you don't pay attention!' "
Whoops. It looks like The Onion accidentally invented Advertising Week.
