Advertising awards have reached peak honesty with the Handys, a new (fake) show that isn't a show at all—it's an app where you get a prize just for shaking your phone up and down like a real wanker. (Really: Pull up handyawards.org on your phone, and go to town.)

The concept comes from a couple of industry creatives who prefer to remain anonymous, according to the press materials.
