Dead Eyes And Tears...

(click ad for fake disgusting-ness)
The Red Cross endlessly needs oceans of blood, yes, but they also need lots and lots of bloody eyeballs freshly ripped out of our still-warm dead heads. The best way to convey this vital message—at least according to this ad for the Thai Red Cross Eye Bank—is to show a landfill filled with overflowing trashbags of mutant, oversized peepers. Eww? And ineffective? Here's a much better eye bank ad. previously in bloody advertising: There Will Be Blood, acknowledges French Tampax ad; and a Mind Is A Terrible Thing If It's Hemorrhaging. (thanks to Jeremy Russell for the image. As all NYC subway riders know, actor Jerry Orbach donated his eyes.)
