Advertising Week Has Officially Started

A convoy of brainwashing child mascots could be seen crawling through traffic on 42nd Street this morning, marking the start of Advertising Week. Charlie the Tuna, Buzz Bee, and other species potentially facing extinction waved from the top deck of a sightseeing tourist bus and from individual vehicles at passersby.

There will be no shortage of events for the industry that loves to celebrate itself, none of them worth attending, but now you know. (Photo: Bucky Turco/ANIMALNewYork)
