Adobe has been entertaining us for a while now with its "Do You Know What Your Marketing Is Doing?" campaign through Goodby Silverstein & Partners. Previous spot "Click Baby Click" showed the dangers of relying too much on seemingly organic clicks, but Adobe's latest film concerns a marketer whose mistake is buying clicks. After an encounter with a hardcore click dealer on the wrong side of town, our marketer is arrested and pays the price: jail and humiliation. The ad, which is appropriately titled "Mean Streets," was directed by MJZ's Dante Ariola.
