Snuffing The Smurfs

Smurfs are the latest casualty in advertising’s race to the gutter. In a tasteless anti-war ad for UNICEF, the cuddly blue creatures are carpet-bombed, complete with flames, bodies, and crying babies.

In order to help children in other countries, UNICEF has decided that it is acceptable to traumatize the children of contributors. That plan will work about as well as the RIAA suing their customers.

Of course, I’ll be waiting for the video, not the series of stills floating around the web.
