    THESE Are The Best Ads In The World?

    The Benetton "UNHATE" campaign—which includes an execution of Barack Obama smooching Hugo Chávez—just won the Press Grand Prix Lion at Cannes.

    This ad, featuring the Pope necking with Egyptian imam Mohamed Ahmed el-Tayeb, was pulled after running only once because—surprise— the Vatican angrily protested.

    It's not an original idea, probably stolen from a 1990 piece of Berlin street art depicting Leonid Brezhnev and Erich Honecker kissing (see below).

    It's not even an original Benetton idea—see this nun and priest ad from 1991.

    Great job, Gods of Creativity.

    Ad agencies: Fabrica, Italy and 72andSunny, Amsterdam.

    Obama + Chávez. He tastes like oil!

    Mahmoud Abbas and Bibi Netanyahu. Looks very forced by both parties.

    Former French president Nicolas "little Sarko" Sarkozy and German chancellor Angela Merkel.
