At the National Advertising Division’s Advertising Week conference at the W Hotel on Tuesday, NAD staff attorney Jennifer Fried began her presentation on trends in ad disputes with this anecdote: She had a dream the night before in which she was giving her presentation. “It just turned absolutely ugly,” Fried said.

You were all pelting me quite viciously with jelly beans.” So, she warned the audience, “keep your hands down, and no sudden movements.” Her talk went off without a hitch.
