Brand X makes an urgent call
The maker of this month's Brand X is running consumer ads depicting an iPhone full of increasingly, well, urgent texts from its owner's bladder. The creative plays to the exasperation that sufferers feel. The drug met its primary endpoint in a 12-week study unveiled last week. That's good news for the 33 million American sufferers of the condition it treats—and for the manufacturer, which will need all the help it can get to recuperate after a nasty tumble over the patent cliff.

Congratulations to Vira L. Katolik, Marketing Director at Digitas Health, for correctly identifying an ad for Crestor, AstraZeneca's medication to lower cholesterol.
