Adbusters, Prozac

Adbusters, Prozac

This poster was a spoof advertisement from the anti-consumerist organization Adbusters. It was created by Kalle Lasn and Bill Schmalz of Vancouver, Canada. They built their foundation on the belief that consumers do not have the same information flows as organizations. This particular poster is a satire of the obedient and housewife and the image that housewives are supposed to have it all together. It also satires society's dependence on antidepressants. I found this poster very interesting because I had never heard of this form of anti-advertising before and I think that it has a good point, society is dependent on so many types of medications in order to allow people just to live their ordinary lives.
