Scientific American has reported that kids are seeing too many anti-impotence ads. No word if they are immune to all the anti-depressant and sleeping pill commercials, but beer commercials will have to be marketed to adults from now on. They suggest that more birth control ads should be shown, and that kids should become media literate so they will be "immunized against commercials."

The best quote: "We'd like to see more birth control ads and less ads for erectile dysfunction drugs because it makes sex seem like a recreational activity."

Hey! We all gotta have a hobby!

Waitaminnit! Does this mean that ads aimed at adults influence kids? Does this mean that if a cartoon ad is aimed at adults, it influences kids? If so, then Joe Camel might not have been deliberate after all! Unlike Ronald McDonald and The King.
