  • UN releases land mine awareness ad

    Posted on January 31st, 2005 Finster 2 comments

    The UN released an ad campaign to get us to be more aware of the problem of land mines worldwide. I think the original UN commercial is in really really bad taste. Let me give you the version that the UN released.

    And an alternate version that appeared on the internet some time later.

    I swear, this must’ve been taken straight out of Monty Python’s Flying Circus.

    WARNING: These videos do depict a simulated land mine blowing up a teenage girl as she plays soccer. I guess the UN figures such grotesque depictions will make me want to give them a billion dollars or something.

    • In fairness to the UN, I am definitely against any land mines being placed in places where teenage girls play soccer. Good for the UN and their lucid vision of what’s wrong with the world.

    • I’m shocked that the UN would bring something like this out. The Brits already have enough trouble with their football fans – how long before they start mining their opponents’ practice fields now that someone has presented the idea to them.
