I believe that should be: Lies Well Disguised.

It's been bloated agency McCann Erickson's tagline since 19 fucking 12. They even got it trademarked before service industries were allowed to trademark words. So proud, they are, it's still on their website today (under About, then History). WHAT AN ABSOLUTE LOAD OF OLD AD GUY SHIT. "For everything else, there's Mastercard?" Yeah, tons of truthiness in that statement. And those fake ads for Microsoft—as honest as the day is long. Keep raising the bar, boys. The rest of us hucksters need a shining beacon of veracity to reach for.
