Not everything is worth an Effie

The show sympathizes with everyone who's been pitched awful ideas.

Here’s the thing about ideas: everyone thinks theirs is brilliant. This is something you (brilliant creative person reading this) have probably dealt with while making small talk with family and friends at a party or barbecue. Right? You may not be able to escape those cringe-inducing conversations/impromptu pitches, but at least The Effie Awards understands your pain.

The Effies, which recognizes the most effective international ad ideas, has launched a new campaign to coincide with the opening of entries for the 2016 awards. Handled by The Via Agency in Portland,the ad shows agency types being pitched the best ideas from all the worst sources: your drinking buddies, your mechanic, your uncle at a family dinner. They range from impractical (coordinating 400 horses) to morbid (a life insurance coupon inside of a funeral brochure) to just bad… very, very bad.
