Then there’s this...

Apple iPod—made for kids by kids? Apparently. Apple reports that a few of their overseas vendors were using underage workers to assemble some of America’s favorite tech goodies. But wait, there’s more. Some of the suppliers also paid less than the minimum wage and even cut out some benefits.

Now accepting voiceover duty on behalf of Jeff Bridges... Rather than ruin Jeff Bridges’ moment in the sun during the Oscars—and to keep in line with Academy regulations regarding ads featuring nominees—automaker Hyundai has instead decided to run all their spots with the voices of other actors instead.

Why you drink more. Because ads tell you to drink less. So goes the thinking behind a new Indiana University Kelley School of Business study. It claims industry efforts to promote responsible drinking may actually reinforce existing feelings of guilt and shame among the very audience it addresses.
