Great and terrible ads of 2011, Nike MAGs, lawsuits, and Kenny Powers: the week's top posts

Our two top stories were night and day this week: the Emmy win for Wieden + Kennedy's Chrysler spot, and the year's most awful ad campaign so far, for Sheets Energy Strips. Elsewhere, we saw Nike officially release the Back to the Future II sneakers, the return of Kenny Powers (this time not for K-Swiss), and an agency that's extremely excited about 1 World Trade Center.
