I see dead people.

(click ads, via) What's funnier than Olds about to be Deads? Nothing! Fucking old people, just die already, so that we young UK fauxhemians can waltz into the London Shock and Soul vintage clothing shop and scoop up your discarded duds, wash the fucking disgusting old smell out of them, and then wear them, ironically, to the next Japanther show. Oh, this campaign just won both a press and outdoor silver lion at Cannes 2010.
: I see (fake) dead peoplePOM sees dead people.

I'm far from prude, but those are just fucking WRONG.

Wrong and asinine both. The prize is the part that gets me. People can not be THAT stupid. Stupid is fine but not THAT stupid.

That? Won? An? Award?

The amount of revulsion I feel for that ad trumps what I felt watching Human Centipede (don't ask, I was compelled) and that's saying something.

This is so wrong. How utterly, utterly unfeeling.

Eh, they're doing nothing and leeching off our money. It's deserved.

My father passed away at age 85 less than 2 months ago. He was strong, healthy and active until a year ago, then he began a rapid decline due to kidney failure.

This disgusting ad made me weep!

This kind of shit is part of the reason my 30-year love affair with cool advertising is over. (I'm not THAT old – started freelance copywriting at 16.) Cold, gross, arrogant and, naturally, award-winning. Makes me glad switched from the creative to CMO side.

I'm not as young as I used to be. Why not just kill me quickly. I have some cool stuff.

A similar, but no so morbid approach to the same idea from 5 years ago.

how absolutely repulsive. whoever thinks this is good advertising needs a knife between the ribs (hope you have good clothes to pass on).
