image from Justine Cooper's Havidol ad

Nice bit o' culture jamming from artist Justine Cooper. She's created a full ad campaign for a drug called Havidol, the first drug designed to combat Dysphoric Social Attention Consumption Deficit Anxiety Disorder. It's a completely made up condition of course... a commentary on our modern "want it all" culture.

(Thanks Wired's Table of Malcontents)

Ha. We don't think it's made up at all. Lots of folks walk around buying stuff and paying more for things that they should without even thinking about it.

I saw this show when I was in New York. It is probably the one I've talked about most....actually I was talking about it tonight. It is quite brilliant and really well made.
