Robert Petkoff's spot-on sardonic performance enables TRUTH IN ADVERTISING to eclipse its initial mundane corporate marketing machinations. He injects a playful tone that evokes empathy for Finbar Dolan, a Madison Avenue ad man who aspires to creative directorship. When listeners aren't contemplating dark post-recession economic realities in this bittersweet manifesto of lost values, art, and consumerism, they're lifted by Petkoff's hilarious level of acerbic emphasis, wry wit, righteous accents, and verbal sound effects. While despairing of the declining souls of ad men, Dolan is forced to cope with unimaginative colleagues, family illness, fragile love, and harsh deadlines, all while tasked to craft a last-minute Super Bowl commercial for diapers.
