What a stupid design! Clicked 5 or so links and gave up.

Question: is there a reason for using Flash when it's just static content being displayed? I'm using ClickToFlash on my Mac (Flash sucks on the Mac) and that made this just that much more of a pain...

I've worked for another office of one of the agencies involved and the reason that they use Flash is that ad agencies love Flash, because they get to use buzzwords like "rich media" and "interactive" and HTML/CSS/JS isn't "rich" or "interactive" enough.

Same experience here. Maybe they should keep that site up as a demo for how much flash sucks. Whenever anybody suggests using Flash, they could just be pointed at those sites.
