This global warming awareness ad by Friends of the Earth goes for the shock value with a skinned polar bear walking around while dragging his fur behind in a sign that the earth is heating up to the extent that the animal had to get rid of its fur to cool down.

The eye-popping ad is created to encourage people to sign a petition asking the Belgian government for stronger and stricter climate laws.
