Where is Gaddafi? Selling life insurance in Australia (print ad).

(click ad) Desperate Despot-vertising!
Previously, we've seen: Mahmoud Ahmadinejad selling yoga classes in Amsterdam; Osama bin Laden selling tattoo removal in Toronto; Stalin selling prostate exams in Singapore; And Hitler selling many, many things worldwide.
Here, McCann Erickson in Melbourne thinks both the slaughter of thousands of Libyans (Most of whom didn't have life insurance) and your inevitable death are worth a little chuckle. (I didn't chuckle. Maybe you did.) Yes, this is a real ad set to run in tomorrow's editions of The Australian, The Age and Sun Herald, according to Campaign Brief. FIRST!
