French paper is latest to offend with 9/11 ad


Why is it that every year, right before 9/11, we get a tasteless new 9/11-themed advertisement? Last year it was the WWF/DDB shitstorm, with the ad showing hundreds of planes heading for lower Manhattan.

Moronic on every level. Via Ads of the World, which credits Saatchi & Saatchi France as the agency.
