Peachy. Consumer generated advertising = crowdsourced exploitation of advertising hopefuls. Having viewed the work and seeing what poptent pays the creators, IMHO clients get what they pay for: semi-on target/ half researched commercials with dubious ROI. And as for the fools eager enough to spend countless hours and $$$ out of pocket for the slim chance to get 1/10th of what they should be making, they get used like a Kansas rube holding a sales slip for the Brooklyn Bridge. Sites like POPTent set an awful trend in the Ad biz and are best avoided.
