No Need for Advertising
But to get to the topic, I don't think an advertising campaign for evolution would work very well.

Advertising is usually used to convince consumers to buy something they don't need, and unlike evolution, is often used to convince consumers to buy something that is somewhat detrimental to one's financial or bodily health.

On the other hand, advertising seems to work for consumerist-oriented religious sects.

Maybe you are on to something, the concept of evolution is too benign in addition to being too self-evident, to require advertising to most rational beings.

Re: It's not science, imo
Show me the papers then, and I will look at them and critique them.

Where are they?

Academic libraries
