Very well done! Is that Turkish president at the background? No more cakes left for him?

Guest's picture

Yes, that's the Turkish president.

Guest's picture

OK. no more cakes left for Mr.Bush and his Europian accomplices...

hé, i am wondering. About the thousands of ads using Ban ki moom, Ahmadinejad, Mugabe...Is there not any rights of this pictures? For the photographer and the subject?
So, in a way, are they walking on some human rights to talk about human rights?

cakes for ahmadinejad! did u people leave the shit for the bushes?

oh, ahmadinejad is the evil and you are the pope. stop this partisan positioning. mugabe, kim or ahmadinejad belong to a political cluster which includes chavez, putin, castro and many more. just putting on cakes will leave the shit for bushes.

i'm not an ardent supporter of human rights violation. neigher i'm a supporter of these leaders nor of the leaders who belong to its counter cluster. these leaders belong to a cluster that has different stance on global politics. by vilifying these leaders, you position yourself as a partisan which is wrong for a human rights group.

before putting up your finger, remember, you have gone bankrupt twice. once when your economy lost all the money and the other when you lost your moral stance.

Very nice, but I question (as always), why are there a range of equal print ads. One good is better then three equals. Specially in a time of financial crisis, where we as creatives ought to think twice before spending the client´s money.

Signe_S's picture

I love the idea, but I´m tired of seeing 3 equal print ads. If you brainstorm anniversary, cake would pop up. As well as champaign, balloons, and what so ever. Use these instead of 3 times cake. Or stop wasting your clients money on doing 3 equal shots.

lol this is human rights not about who is the biggest bastard. These leaders surpressed their own people, hence the human right violations.

racism is a bad thing and doesn't matter if it's against Persians, Americans or Turks. you hateful bastards try to concentrate on the ad critic not on your maniac political views.

Guest's picture

Hi all. I am from Turkey. I think that the campaign is great at first sight but then it is really fiasco and is not even handed. Could you tell me please where Mr.Bush and his Europian accomplices are.

nobody forget that nobody is innocent.
