Ad of the Day: Clearasil - Teacher Truths

For students the torment of high school ends but for teachers it’s a whole other story.

In a campaign giving away ten $5,000 college scholarships, skincare brand Clearasil humorously tackles the trials and tribulations of high school with some teacher truths.

Created by Droga5, to win students must get a teacher to complete the following like: “Teen acne ends. You know what doesn’t? ___________.”
