Well, right now, seemingly for some portion of the
audience, the Adobe ad is no different than a Clarinex
ad. I know I get a little put off by a 30 second
commercial that says a product can make my life
easier/better but doesn't explain what it is. I know
there's a specific legal reason why pharmaceutical ads
aren't allowed to say certain things that can't be
completely said in 30 seconds or less, but Adobe
certainly has the time pocket to throw out a blurb
about what a portable document is and why it's cool.

Just my thoughts.
