It's time for an Osama bin Laden advertising round-up!

(click image) Now that the world's #1 terrorist is apparently dead (buried at sea, how convenient), it's time for a round-up of recent ads that used him as the creative linchpin. Last year, plastic statues of OBL were erected in New Delhi to help remind residents about the evil of plastic bags. Those are collectors items now! He's also been used to sell:
Range Rovers.
Hall's cough drops.
• Samsung music phones.
• And HUMO, A Belgian satire magazine.
Guaranteed: a new rash of ads playing off his death.
