The violentest domestic violence ad ever.


(via) Via France, of course, the country that just yesterday brought us the rapiest rape ad ever. It's for the Fédération Nationale Solidarité Femmes. The sign-off line translates: "Domestic violence: to remain silent is to participate." That head slam was impressive. As with all these types of shock videos, I wonder if they do any good at all. I think this previous one did.
Previous violent domestic violence videos:
• watch a fake snuff video via the London police.
• watch ladies wearing high heels fall down stairs.
• watch men beat the shit out of 2-D plastic women.
• watch Keira Knightley get the shit kicked out of her.
• watch neighbors complain about drumming, ignore wife-beating.

So is it accusing the victims of participating by remaining silent? While several of the scenes depicted seemed to occur publicly (or semi-publicly) we don't see witnesses looking on. Who is this ad condemning, exactly?

Poorly, poorly executed, and the dressing room bit in particular seemed OTT pornographic, like yesterday's ad but worse.

Complete fail.

I agree--I wonder how effective these approaches are. Sexual Assault Voices of Edmonton took an interesting approach with their ads by specifically targeting perpetrators (instead of victims, as in the French ads).

See them here http://wp.me/pIfvI-vN and here http://wp.me/pIfvI-w4

Still I have to wonder how effective this approach is, too.
