How Not to Look Like a Complete Idiot at Advertising Week

Colle+McVoy presents the 'Question Generator' app

Next week is Advertising Week in New York. The main question for anyone planning to attend is, of course: How can I avoid being exposed for the imbecilic fraud that I am? Luckily, ad agency Colle+McVoy is here to help with its Advertising Week Question Generator app. The app automatically generates awesome questions for you to ask after each panel by randomly cobbling together a beginning, a middle and an end from intelligent-sounding prewritten segments. Check out the print ad below (which will appear in the Advertising Week guide) for examples, or take the app for a spin. It's uncanny in that almost every combination sounds like something someone in advertising would say. Whether this makes you sound smart or not, however, is anyone's guess.
