You Can’t Handle the Trivia!
Ad Wars promises to be a fun-filled and fact-filled addition to our roster of annual events. The team competition tests your knowledge of advertising practices, terminology and trivia. But it’s anything but trivial – just ask anyone from the 2011 AAF Omaha Ad Wars championship team from SKAR Advertising! It’s a brutal display of seemingly useless terms and acronyms. It’s a grueling and treacherous evening of famous jingles and tag lines. It’s almost fun!
