Obay!





Strange ads have begun popping up on bus shelters around Toronto. At first glance, they appear to be for a new mind-control drug that's designed to turn teenagers into docile, law-abiding, parent-obeying zombies.

Of course, the campaign is a hilarious spoof. But who's behind it? The people at the Torontoist blog did a little detective work and revealed the culprits' identity. Check out their post--along with additional pictures and a couple of Obay radio ads here.

Those people are lucky they have enough money to actually be able to do that. xD

If it's supposed to be mind-controlling, do you think I could get my sister to "help" me with my homework?
