Obay - From The Makers Of 'WhyBecauseISaidSo'

So I'm sitting on a York Region Transit bus and I notice these advertisements for a drug called Obay. I've also seen these ads in bus shelters.

Apparently, Obay is medication that gets children to do what their parents want. The advertisements feature slogans such as "My son had his own ideas. Obay put a stop to that."

Obviously, it's a parody and very good one at that. What I'd like to know is who's behind all this.

Have you seen the ads? Any idea who's putting them up?

Here's one they should use:

"My daughter wanted to be in an interfaith relationship.

Obay put an end to that!"

Ads these days don't make any sense, so it didn't make me think too too hard.
