Shockvertising at its Finest

If it wasn't at first glance just so repulsive, playing one of the dead arising to hand out brochures might be kind of a kick. This type of shockvertising gets a lot of attention to your product placement or promotion. But is it the right kind of attention?

Occasionally something very ingenious becomes genuine street art, and these photos include some of those examples. I like the sculpture begging for church donations.

The main image is from DDB Argentina for a pop culture magazine called Los Inrockuptibles.

Next time you stumble across a body, go ahead call 911 first, then when you discover it's not a crime scene, describe the product information to the emergency operator. I'm sure they would love it.
