This article describes various advertising campaigns for the technology and communications sector in the U.S. as of May 31, 1999. The 30-second spot Band created by advertising agency Cliff Freeman & Partners for online marketer Outpost.com hardly makes an effort to describe what the company does. The Rubber Ducky commercial developed by Ammirati Puris Lintas for Ameritech goes on to explain how the marketer's Privacy Manager product stops unwanted, unidentified calls before one's phone even rings. That the phone company is busy selling consumer products intended to defeat the services it sells telemarketers is a bit of irony lost in the commercial.
