"This is the real ad for one of the guns used to kill 20 children and six adults in the recent school massacre in Newtown, CT
We talk a lot about how unrealistically airbrushed models affect the way women and girls see themselves, but with 61 of the past 62 mass shootings having been committed by men, we need to open a dialogue about the idea of masculinity and how it affects the way we men see ourselves."

Pro-democracy commercial from a 1988 plebiscite to extend dictator Pinochet's rule: "Chile, joy is coming! Let's say no!".
I find these ads endlessly fascinating. As detailed in the new movie No, one of the strengths of the pro-democracy campaign was apparently how it communicated primarily positive and hopeful, rather than negative, messages even in the face of a horrific dictatorship.
This particularly powerful one manages to portray a cop beating a protestor in a positive light, pointing out how both humans desire peace, share a nationality and "fight for what they believe".

Israeli graphic design students redesign "this site has been hacked" pages, send the designs to hacker groups. (Less cool: This is a guerilla ad campaign for the design school thought up by a big agency.)

Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify and vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as crazy, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.

Target: Women... Yogurt Edition!
Current.tv's InfoMania is media criticism wrapped in that over-the-top, loud, teenage MTV style – almost to the degree of self parody at times, but still quite smart. This particular segment is hilarious. bestposts
