I doubt that kind of speaker will give any beat.

Today ONE launched the NO CHILD BORN WITH HIV BY 2015 which should be a cool ad campaign for th MDGs. This campaign will be an intense burst for a week channelled through, culminating with the UN Millennium Development Goals Summit next Monday (20-22nd September) in NYC. It is a really entertaining way to show some support! Hopefully it will generate some internet buzz as babies get sent around threatening to ‘Throw the bottle out of the Pram’ or ‘Put us on the naughty step’ unless we show some support. Check it out at
We would immensely appreciate your support by signing the online petition and – if you’re so inspired – to blog about it or share it with your friends by email or on Twitter.
This is a cause that can only be made good with the help of the public. Every name on the petition counts.

i never gave much thought to it either, but ad after ad, year after year, there's a distinct pattern of nonsense coming from italy.
and i thought japan was the most foreign place on the planet for westerners.

Typical Italian print ad ---- beautiful art direction ---- watered down ideas.
