The two stupidest Nelson Mandela ads ever produced.
He was a great man, unquestionably.
And these two ads are not great, unquestionably.
Top — an ad for Inchalam nails, by Ogilvy & Mather, Chile. STAY STRONG. No further comment necessary.
Bottom — an ad (headline: Life is easier, if you don’t speak up. Debate.) for Denmark’s largest newspaper, Jyllands-Posten — internationally famous for publishing that cartoon of the Prophet Muhammad with a bomb in his turban. Ad agency: Uncle Grey, Denmark. That is some gnarly Photoshop work.
Your call on which one takes the stupid cake.
