Lies Well Disguised, #8.

AIDS advertising. Good at getting people hot and bothered. Not so good at promoting AIDS awareness. Check out the sexy visuals and much less sexy words in this week's Gawker column (link).
previous Lies Well Disguised:
7. Kenneth Cole. Heel.
6. Advertising Horror Stories.
5. We are all made of Starbucks.
4. Deutsch & Binn: Perfect Douche Storm.
3. Unparalleled Hyperbole of NYC Real Estate Ads.
2. The Bloody Death of Celebrity Endorsements.
1. Advertising Week 2006.

I'm thinking they had to make them pretty because no one really wants to see little kids with yellow eyes/open sores, and lips cracked from dehydration. It makes it harder to live in our cocoons the other way

Personally, I'd rather see the sick kids over the shithead celebs who pretend to know "something" about the world we live in.

And yes. I'm jealous because they make more money than me.

There's something offensive about the big cow mammaries of whatsherface. Can we contain the sex sells stuff for at least AIDS advertising?!!!!

I still remember the first AIDS education campaign in Australia with the Grim Reapers bowling. It scared people so much that every copy of it has dissapeared (a good thing too as the make-up on the grim reaper was so good I am still scared of it.)
