NEW YORK (AdAge.com) -- A messy $25,000 cake-eating contest for brides, a runway show in which models wore fruit and vegetables instead of clothes, a pet food company that opened a cat house designed for humans and a band that locked itself in a "bubble" for 22 days were just some of the event-marketing stunts covered by Ad Age intern Emily Tan this summer. The 22-year-old NYU grad traipsed from one end of Manhattan to the other to write about that part of the ad industry that will do damned near anything -- no matter how absurd -- to draw crowds to its product promotions.
