Scam Ads: Apparently ad agencies will bend the rules by creating illicit ad campaigns using name brands so that the agency can submit the ads for awards consideration. According to Hasbro, such is the case for these Play-Doh ads that ran in a 2009 issue of a magazine called Navigator in Singapore. Hasbro found out about the ads and managed to get them blocked from being accepted for consideration on the awards circuit. This was despite the fact that an employee at Hasbro's Singapore office approved the ads' publication.
