I saw news of these ads popping up in Toronto, and thought they were pretty awesome. A nice sarcastic reminder for parents not to be douchebags, and for kids to not be afraid of creativity. I recently caught a glimpse of some Obay ads on the sides of buses here in London, so it's spreading.
There was some confusion over who was responsible for these, but it seems to have been confirmed that it's Colleges Ontario who put them up. Even better, because this is what college/university should be about; following dreams and pursuing new ideas. It's not about validating parents' dreams and trying to get a good job. That leads to people who don't actually want to be here, and don't care about actually learning anything. These people surely aren't themselves happy, and they tend to annoy the people around them. Like, say, their TAs.
P.S. If you haven't checked out my scrapbook recently, be sure to do so. It's where I put beautiful pictures that don't warrant a full blog post, or that I just want to keep for future reference.
