Well, Pfizer pulled the million-dollar man, Dr. Robert Jarvik, from its pharmaceutical (Lipitor) ads today due to "misimpressions." It's just too risky to use a make-believe clinical doctor, I guess.
Instead, we can look forward to more beavers, butterflies, and animated pipemen to promote drugs more objectively.
Hell, I see butterflies in my bedroom when I take Lunesta, don't you? Especially since they paid over $182.7 million in the first half of 2007 to make sure I see them over and over and over again...
