Benetton Releases Jaw Dropping UNhate Campaign – Shows World Leaders Sharing a Kiss!
My jaw hit the floor when I saw the picture of Barack Obama kissing Hugo Chavez. It was sent from one of my sources as breaking news – Obama Caught! Ha ha, not funny. What the pictures turned out to be were an ad by Benetton. It’s part of a new campaign to promote the idea of “Unhate”.
I say “No Sh#T”. That’s a whole lot of Unhating.
Alessandro Benetton released a statement in reference to the ads:
“The images are very strong, but we have to send a strong message. We are not wanting to be disrespectful of the leaders … we consider them “conception figures” making a statement of brotherhood with a kiss,”
It will be interesting to see what our White House says about the ads. You are not allowed to use the president’s name or likeness for commercial purposes, but I’m not sure how this law plays out internationally.
Either way it’s freaky-deaky.
