RIP Etch a Sketchman

Trust AdFreak for the best obits. André Cassagnes, inventor of the Etch A Sketch died Jan. 16 at the age of 86. The brand's ad agency, Team Detroit, crafted this cunning tribute.

How many peaceful hours his invention brought to my parents during car trips in a station wagon unequipped with electronic kid-silencing gadgets.
