I suppose it isn’t the worst thing. I’m not offended, just think it’s extremely not tasteful to attempt to capitalize on murders. I mean, would you want to see a natural gas company use concentration camps as a theme for advertisements? What about Incan or Aztec themes for a corporation introducing a new vaccine? Seems like a tabloid thing to do.
I don’t mean to minimize the pain and loss of the victims at 9/11 but u americans are just shocked coz this time the gun was pointing your way, when u r used to hold it without caring for anyone. USA grow up and face the fact that u mess it sometimes and those times built up to get u 9/11… be more caring and wiser next time u have GWBush or someone like him aspiring for leadership.
Hmm, the mag is Belgian, so they’re just mocking America as our media does to so many others. For instance, the Simpsons line about how a Belgian admits that he should be trusted as much as one can trust the word of a Belgian. Or how at Burning Man one year, a Belgian crew was mocked for their huge but pointless artwork which everyone just called “the Waffle”. Granted, Belgian bating goes back at least as far as Monty Python’s “I can’t think of anything more insulting (to call someone) than Belgian!” It’s like a class clown, when your peers (kids or countries) only know you from your immature outbursts, better bad attention than none.
The ad did it’s job didn’t it? I mean it got everyone’s attention. I, for one, had never heard of hugo magazine, but now i know what it is.
Negative press is still press.
If you want this to go away all you have to do is treat it like the shit it is and throw it away. Never talk about and just ignore it.
Oh yeah…there was one more.
That the then president, Bush junior, in his infinite idiocy, decided to leave bin laden alone ….
near as I could tell, the only humor involved with this incident is the insane scramble afterwards to find heroes (and, reluctant heroes at that) and the establishing an even taller building in their place.
Godammit…can I read ONE thing about 9/11 without some retarded conspiracy theorist spouting the same old “facts”?!?! Back that shit up with some concrete sources and maybe you’ll start to convince me that the most incompetent administration in America’s history, led by a man who is a colossal idiot organized the greatest cover-up in all of history. Idiots…
