MercuryCSC, a Montana advertising agency that specializes in helping brands connect with world travelers, is doing a holiday experiment. Taking Michael Pollan’s guideline to “Eat only foods that rot” to heart, they are taking the makings of a typical holiday meal and allowing it to sit out and rot.


They’ve named their experiment “Rotten Christmas.”
