This February 18th marks The Advertising Council’s seventieth anniversary. Since 1942, the non-profit organization has been creating memorable campaigns aimed at improving the lives of the American people. Ad Council icons and slogans are woven into the very fabric of American culture. With campaigns ranging from "Loose Lips Sink Ships" and “Rosie the Riveter” to Smokey Bear’s "Only You Can Prevent Forest Fires," “Friends Don’t Let Friends Drive Drunk” and "A Mind is a Terrible Thing To Waste" – Ad Council public service advertisements (PSAs) have been raising awareness, inspiring action and saving lives for seventy years.
To commemorate this anniversary, the Ad Council has launched a new Facebook app: Rosify Yourself. Using the app, fans of the Ad Council are able to join the ranks of PSA greats by inserting a face photo into the iconic “Rosie the Riveter” ad thus becoming riveters for social change.
