Controversy killed the hate!

Friday, November 18, 2011

If only Benneton's clothing was as appealing or at least as interesting as their Ad Campaigns. This ''Unhate'' one is the latest featuring religious and world leaders like Barrack Obama and Hugo Chavez pictured above. There's one with Angela Merkel snogging former Italian PM Silvio Berlusconi and Pope Benedict planting one on Egyptian sheikh Mohammed Ahmed al-Tayeb. Naturally, religious institutions are up in arms especially in Catholic Italy.  Benetton has had to pull the ad out but of course, since its Wednesday release, we are talking about it. I just hope for their sake, it's going to lead to sales.
