creep Hey, kids, let’s have a bit of fun, shall we? Which of these three realities, as reported upon in Advertising Age today, gets your vote as marketing creep of the day? All three strike your humble editor as strong, strong candidates.

(1) An advertising agency called Victors & Spoils, which operates thusly.

(2) A corporate lawyer arguing that the FTC should continue “encouraging industry self-regulation.” Because, you know, that’s what the people really want.

(3) A “mobile marketing” exec using his visit to his 10- and 14-year-old nieces to spy and report on their use of “social media.”
