These print ads for the World Association of Newspapers leave a very strong visual impression, and some people might consider them to be quite controversial. The campaign is called "Hide and Seek" and the newspaper’s motto is "Where history plays out daily."
The first image in the gallery shows the assassinated civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. and a member of the hated racist group, The Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. It has "King Takes Knight" as its chess-referenced tag line.
The following image has ex British Prime Minister Winston Churchill who is chiefly noted for his leadership in the United Kingdom during World War III, and Nazi butcher Adolph Hitler. The two are pictures playing the popular hand game "Rock, Paper, Scissors," where Churchill’s scissor is seen beating Hitler’s paper.
Finally, a blinded president George W. Bush displays his incredible ineptitude as he is shown next to terror mastermind Osama bin Laden in an ad that has "Hide and Seek" as its tag line.
