The New York Lottery Has an Amazing Idea for Taming That Cord Monster

Scratch-Offs Introduce a Bit of Fun Into Mundane 9-5 Life

Editor's Pick

The mundane world of office life becomes so much more colorful in McCann New York's latest for the New York lottery. In one ad, a couple of white collars take a break by the water cooler and contemplate whether a carpet stain looks more like Australia or a western omelet, until their boss comes along with a more brilliant observation.

Another ad shows an IT guy's brilliant idea for making a massive cord monster something he can enjoy when he's bored out of his skull. The point of all this is that the humdrum 9-5 grind gives us plenty of time to dwell on the dull, so why not take a break from the beige with a New York Lottery Scratch-Off game?
