Do you ever feel that the high-paced modern lifestyle of consumerism and keeping up with the Joneses is getting you down? You may want to talk to your doctor about Havidol, the only treatment approved for the newly-recognized condition of Dysphoric Social Attention Consumption Deficit Anxiety Disorder (DSACDAD). This modern miracle drug is available in 20 mg tablets and suppositories. The side effects are similar to many other drugs, with the addition of dermal gloss and inter-species communication (these side effects are rarely seen with other drugs). The official website explains that Havidol “helps sufferers see that no matter how much they have, more is always possible.”
The website is fantastic. It’s the brainchild of New York artist Justine Cooper, and is an obvious parody of the pharmaceutical advertising that bombards us from magazines, tv, radio, and billboards every day. The sad part is that apparently a lot of people don’t realize that the Havidol campaign is a satire. We’ve become so accustomed to letting drug companies teach us about our various “disorders” that we no longer notice the absurdity of pharmaceutical advertising.
