Rants on all the ads that suck. Updated whenever it tickles my fancy to do so. Now moved to http://adsthatsuck.ca

THIS SITE HAS MOVED TO http://www.adsthatsuck.ca

Sometimes, focus groups pay off.

Okay, an easy one today, since I'm on vacation. This has made it around the net a few times, but here it is again. Not so much an ad that sucks, but definitely a logo that... ahem... sucks.



Now here's a good example of something extremely obviously bad that just made it in under the radar. To be honest, I don't know how this could have happened. Seems to me, somewhere along the way, someone - a printer, a board member, a casual observer would have said something. But... I guess not.

So here we are.



By the way, do a Google search for Arlington Pediatric Center, and I defy you to find their actual site and not someone referencing their (now old) logo.

Oh... my... GOD!! Someone had to *actively* not be thinking for this to happen. For real, had to be avoiding anything resembling thinking... I mean this is blatant... wow. It's so shocking I've lost all power of criticism... all I can come up with is staggered stutters. It is so wrong-ity, wrong, wrong, wrong that it takes my breath away. Yikes. How did you find this one?

So they're not using it anymore? I wonder if they could sell it to NAMBLA?

I managed the "challenge". A Google search for
allintitle: "Arlington Pediatric Center" yields the following third result: http://www.lansdalegroup.com/press_apc.htm
which has a link to the new site: http://www.arlpedcen.org/
