There is, for each ad posted, an attempt to explain how or why the ad depicted is bad. Which I think is appropriate, otherwise making fun of bad ads is just shooting fish in a barrel. I do, however stand by my selection I made on this blog 3 years ago.
The Tracy Awards is a production of Crowell Advertising in Salt Lake City.
