A tribute to Kim Jong-il (six attack ads).

(click ads)
Now that the Dear Leader has rocketed off this mortal coil due to "mental and physical exhaustion", according to a blubbering North Korean broadcaster, we can look back with snickers at the anti-KJi ads produced by various human rights organizations.
Top Left: Kim gets his paper face rearranged by French freedom of the press advocates Reporters Without Borders.
Top Right: A very fake looking KJi is sent scurrying up the drapes by the mouse of Germany's International Society for Human Rights (ISHR). That looks like a boy's body with the Dear Leader's big head.
Middle Left: Kim looks quite non-plussed to be smashed in the face with (Uranium yellow) cake by the ISHR.
Middle Right: Jong gets the Photoshopped kiss of death from South Korean leader Lee Myung-bak via Benetton's latest round of rabble-rousing ads.
Lower Left: Amnesty International in Spain plants a bug-size logo on the ruthless dictator's schnoz, and digitally crosses his eyes. That showed him.
Lower Right: Not an ad, but the classic Economist cover from 2006.

So there's hope for North Korea after all!

"At Herezie, we believe that the strongest, most effective ideas in all fields of human achievement - business, but also art, music, science or sport - have always come from heresy; ideas that challenge and reshape the existing "orthodoxy," says Andrea Stillacci.

Cheil Worldwide Korea has announced the launch of its strategic alliance with Herezie Paris, a start up agency led by leading French advertising industry figures, Andrea Stillacci and Luc Wise, with the experienced backing of Pierre Callegari.

Did you mean Herezie, the French agency voted the best young agency? It's really funny that you posted this the day Mark posted their self promo ad.
