Osama Bin Laden Sold Condoms, Among Other Things

Osama bin Laden wasn't the subject of much serious advertising over the years. He and Hitler (and sometimes Stalin and Mao) would frequently show up together as shorthand for evil in mostly lazy advertisements. But a few efforts were amusing. We'll post just this one—a condom ad from Germany from a few years ago that urged you to use protection to be sure you don't bring the next bin Laden into the world. (Yes, there was a Hitler version.) See a few more bin Laden ads over at Copyranter.
