Clever Add Campaign

How many of you have seen the "I want my vacation adds" running on the tube right now. Check out who's running them at You know something, they so have a point. Nice piece of work.

"Ad," as in "advertisement." "Add" is a math function.

That said, it's pretty freakin' clever. We were watching TV and I had the laptop open, and Steph prompted me to check it out.

And I agree that Americans are screwed up in terms of vacation and days/hours worked. Although, I'm currently working for me with no day job, so every day is a little like a vacation. :)

I'm glad an ad like that is finally in public eye.

If you are really interested in the topic you should read Joe Robinson's book "Work to Live"

Very interesting and eye-opening book. I'm all for getting more paid time off to go ride rollercoasters :)

Sounds like that Alton Towers ad campaign where they wanted people to skip work... atleast Universal somewhat hid themselves. Plus they didn't stoop down to the 'Don't like pixie dust?' low commericals.

Jeff, I'd blame the extra "d" on my dysfunctional keyboard, but I know better.

I know about the feeling of being on vacation all the time. Been unemployed for just a month now. Been trying to drum up some consulting and band organ repair work while trying to find a new position.
