Hell of an Ad



This real billboard for Hell's Pizza was the subject of a complaint with New Zealand's advertising board. Here's the funny part:

But advertising agency Cinderella Ltd defended the billboard, saying that it tapped in to a growing sense of outrage about the invasion of Iraq.

The agency also said that use of the term "bastard" is widespread and can be considered a compliment.

The board ruled the choice of words was irresponsible, but the association with Mr Bush did not cause serious or widespread offence.
I agree with Crooks and Liars, gotta love 'em kiwis.
