Adland - all the adnews not fit to print.
For those of you already suffering from severe adcritic withdrawel I might recommend watching Swedish TV commercials at the site called http://www.kaminsky.nu.
Lots and lots of quite surreal, good and bad films to go through. Widen your broadband experience with foreign commercials. No subtitles - often the joke is international and in some cases the dialougue is in English. Do not click on the non-existent read more link - there is no more to read.
ps - they also have trailers.

Apparently, all the advertising and traffic in the world still won't keep a website alive these days.
According to dotcom death chronicler fuckedcompany.com , AdCritic.com has found that it's uncommercial and pulled the plug.
A lack of response from their URL confirms this.
Dear Ad Agencies, and whomever this may concern:
We see shampoo commercials featuring women washing their hair in the shower. Prell, Pert Plus, and Herbal Essences commercials feature women washing their hair in the shower.
Now, let's look at your typical face wash commercial. Women with her hair tied back, splashes some water on her face, at the sink. Then she lathers up with a face wash, and then splashes water on her face to rinse it.
So the question is: Why don't we see women washing their face in the shower in face wash ads?
Seems everywhere we look, massfirerings are happening. 10% of the danish advertising professionals have walked to their offices for the last time. W+K have slashed staff worldwide.
In Stockholm the freelancers gang is growing to critical mass. Large agencies in the u.s. calls staffers to the friday meeting ("we feel, it's better to fire on Fridays") as morality sinks to mimic the agencies golden cow account tagline, like a Rock.
