    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.

    All hail the power of Photoshop.
    THIS is the best of the last 12 months?

    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.
