Advertising agency Fresse and Wolff in Oldenburg, Germany nailed the Deutscher Tierschutz ad in the head with its gory and effective message regarding animal rights. All four pictures represent a horrific aspect that face many wild and domestic animals, such as: skinning, castrating, testing and branding.
The Deutscher Tierschutz campaign will draw attention with its in-your-face nudity, violent approach and powerful implications that hopes to one day end animal abuse.
Implications - This kind of ad campaign is a bold but bright move for a company like Fresse and Wolff.
