The funniest starving African ads I've ever seen.

(click, via)
What are these, ads for JBL?
Yes, not all Africans. Roll with my hyperbolic headline.
To quote the AofW commenter CuriousPencil: "Give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day. Give a man a speaker and his boat will fucking sink."
Talk about your completely fucked up visual metaphors. "Hello actionaid? My ox has dropped dead from the weight of your speakers. Could you send a microphone, or possibly a bullhorn? Or another ox?"
A shame so much money was spent on these beautiful layouts.
Ad agency: DLV BBDO Italy.
Previously: donate your liposuctioned fat to starving Africans.

The cow one is the funniest.

I'm willing to bet the client was male.

but loudspeakers don't give you a voice, they just let you listen to other peoples' voices.

Surely a microphone would be a better visual shortcut.
