Bad taste ice cream
30 March 2009
After using multi media, pop art, and being pioneer in using the internet during the elections, Barak Obama has been facing a hard time dealing with his worldwide disseminated image. A Russian advertisement in bad taste of a vanilla and chocolate ice cream has created reactions in many human rights organizations since last week. The ad brings a character clearly inspired by Obama, in front of the White House, with the slogan “it is in everybody’s mouth. It is black on white”.
According to agency Reuters, the organizations have judged the campaign, launched in the city of Yekatarinburg, poor.
Reuters also talked to the creative director of the agency Voskhod, Yevgeny Primachenko, responsible for the ad, who he only wanted to “create a funny campaign, as funny as eating ice cream.
I hope the ice cream isn’t as bad as its campaigns.
