A deodorant company with a product called "Smell No Mo" pits two rival ad agencies in a race to come up with a campaign for a new-fangled sanitary napkin called Vorcan. The advertising satire follows the New York firm of Cranston & Co. as they fight rival Hoffman & Partners. Cranston fires his creative director which puts a young copywriter with a literature degree on the front line, even though he doesn't want to be. The contest comes down to a schmaltzy campaign by Hoffman with music by Air Supply that uses the tagline "Vorcan: your own personal air supply." or a more down to earth campaign from Cranston of "The pad ain't bad!"

This movie is hilarious. Although it does have a little bit of cumbersome acting and it obviously didn't have much of a budget, it is a solidly funny movie with some great characters. I loved it the first and only time I saw it years ago on HBO or Showtime of something like that and I laughed my ass off. I spent 5 years as a Graphic Designer and found myself remembering it constantly, with the phrase "Aaaaaadvertising" going through my head with a smile. The only thing is that I can't seem to find it anywhere to buy. Netflix doesn't even have it and they have, like, everything. Before reading the stats on it, I was sure it was a small time Canadian film that only made it to pay cable. At any rate, if anyone knows where I can find this little movie on DVD it would be very helpful. Otherwise, if you haven't seen it and get a chance to, DO check it out. Besedes possibly being one of your only chances to catch it, it's very fun.
