27 Spin-Offs of Deranged Dictators

From Humanizing Villains to Terrorist Toilet Paper

— July 11, 2010 — Marketing
Nobody is perfect, but this cluster of deranged dictators features some of the worst humans our planet has produced. Psychotic, overbearing and power-hungry are some of the kindest words I can find for the likes of Adolf Hitler, Osama bin Laden, Kim Jong-il and the other deranged dictators featured in this cluster. From humanizing villains to terrorist toilet paper, try to stomach these spin-offs as best you can.

Implications - These examples are capitalizing off of the shock that is incited by referencing dictators. Corporations that want to arrest consumer attention can similarly utilize shock images in their advertising campaigns, though they need to be careful the images do not alienate themselves from their customers.
