MSCO chief Mark Stevens disagrees, stating that the Rozerem campaign succeeds in breaking the model of what a pharma ad should be. "I think the commercial is memorable, unusual, and I certainly remember it," says Stevens, who penned the book Your Marketing Sucks. "I like the fact that they are having fun with a serious topic, but not being funny. If you can go down a path that makes people scratch their heads at first but eventually get it, then you've made a good commercial."

MOVES Blue Diesel opened an office in Newtown, Penn.
