Stop the world record of executions.
China holds the current world record of executions with executing 1,010 people of 1,591 confirmed executions worldwide.
Although the Beijing Olympic committee declared that hosting the Olympics will ‘help the development of human rights in China’.

Hey Le Douchebag;

The West IS good. The Chinese government IS bad. You should thank the deity of your choice that you live the kind of life that allows you the luxury of being bored by the very question.

first... people need to stop with the whole "le douche bag" thing, its not original. Every time someone disagrees with me thats how the reply ALWAYS starts.

second...guy... the more you study and understand the huge game of Chess the world is, and ideas you have aren't your own then you can comment. If you are involved in the industry, how could you not understand the shaping of public opinion?

so before you reply to this, go youtube search a movie called the Century of Self. it breaks this down for you. It will spoon feed you so you can grasp WTF i am saying

Le Douchebag;

Our society isn't perfect, but when all you do with your freedom is exercise the lazy, moral relativist argument that repressive communist regimes like China's are no better and no worse than the system we enjoy, you are truly earning your nickname.

Step one begins with you realizing that you can buy and watch movies like 'Century of the Self', you can go to a Noam Chomsky lecture, you can march down the street with an asinine Bush=Hitler placard, and suffer no repercussions.

You are free to be a true Douchebag who's completely lost sight of the fact that he's free to be a douchebag. The west is great. Too bad it produces legions of spoiled children who don't appreciate it.

Hey Douchebomb;

If America doesn't exist, does Youtube exist? Do Trey Parker and Matt Stone exist? Hells no, mofo!
So you defeat your own argument just by making your argument. Someday, in a few years, if you grow up, you'll probably develop a modicum of self-awareness, and you won't be able to believe that you ever posted statements like the ones you've posted here. Plus, all your friends will have arrived at the same point in life, so it'll be easy, you'll just have to keep going along with the crowd, just like you're doing now, because you're essential spineless and incapable of independent thought.

I'm a right wing nutjob? Thanks for confirmation that I kicked your ass in this debate.

I gather that well-reasoned, articulate arguments make you insecure. I can understand that. You're a featherweight.

You seem to remain oblivious to the irony of supporting your moral relativist argument that the west is no better than China with links to Youtube clips. I think the problem may be not that you're naive, but that you're just too mentally dim. It's probably genetic.

You have the luxury of equating real political oppression and denial of freedom (China) with a saturated media culture (the west), and you're enough of a douchebag to do it. It's an insult to the millions of people who really do suffer, douchebag.

FarFromFlorida, you're a cunt. I only created an account on AOTW to tell you that. Seriously. I've only been member for about 6 minutes and I did it all for you. You even inspired my username. I'm fully aware that by calling out the fact that you're a total wanker i'm only sinking to your level but you have a certain doucheness that I couldn't resist stomping. First of all cock, I'm not sure what you're CD would think of your dumb ass recreating a concept that's been done, but mine would be pissed. That's all our dutch friend was saying––that this idea has already been done, asshole.

Second, all of us shoot for Cannes every year you mammoth loser. With the exception of you I guess. Enjoy those local Addy awards you mediocre pussy.

Third, I think you're stupid. I think you're stupid because you think our dutch friend is somehow more flawed than you because he apparently likes to "drink Gin & Tonics, pick up young girls on the beach (especially Danish or French ones)" What? That sounds awesome. I guess you're gay too.

Lastly, I can't believe that you would ever be trusted to write copy. You write like shit…"who is only in Advertising to go nuts in Cannes Lions every year" So you think that our dutch friend is in advertisng to go crazy inside of the actual award (the cannes lion) they hand out in cannes? It's just called cannes. Not cannes lions. idiot. I'm a much better writer than you and I'm an art director.

You're not alone, Le Douchebag. Turning to alcohol is not an uncommon refuge for the thousands who get torn to shreds in internet forum arguments every day. They feel like the whole world just watched as they were unceremoniously ripped a new one, size XL, by someone of superior intellect, knowledge, and argumentative skills, and gulping down vast quantities of numbing, mind-obliterating booze seems like the only thing that will give solace in their extreme embarrassment.

But it doesn't have to be this way. Many organizations, such as Alchoholics Anonymous, are ready to help. Staffed with volunteers who've been where you've been, drinking in the afternoon because they're complete and utter losers and have nothing better to do, vomiting into sinks in library washrooms, carrying the shameful memory of some epic ass-kicking they received at the hands of someone far superior to them in every way, they're ready to help you salvage some shred of dignity from what's left of the tragic, massive highway wreck of the soul that is your life.

They can help you get the help you need, so that the rest of your life doesn't necessarily have to be the completely forgettable waste of time, money, and oxygen that the first few decades have been.

Call them. Reach out. Get help. That huge new bunghole I ripped you in front of everyone will probably never go away, but that doesn't mean you have to spend the rest of your life being a total embarrassment to your family, whose name you disgrace each and every time you type something or open your mealy mouth.

western countries execute nowhere near as many people as china. estimates range from 1000-6000 in 2007. no one knows for sure. it's a "state secret." the closest wester country is the US at 42. the problem is they execute people for even minor crimes like tax evasion. as for the ad, it's pretty expected. give that brief to everyone here and they'll all have the same idea.

For Chinese, you no need to be so angry, coz not all the ppl thinking and doing like these jerks.I believe we are creatives and we all haf our own opinion on those things, just let Jerks think and do whatever they want, The truth and the answer are there, PPl will know by themselves.

You do never know the truth of China, stop libel. Welcome to China and experience the present of China.

Ok here's the deal. China's government is oppressive. But that's not why these people are concerned. Racial prejudice and fear against the Chinese has been historically documented and people use China's corrupt government as an excuse to attack the Chinese.
Another thing whats wrong the death penalty? the fact that the chinese interfere with people's daily lives, censor the internet, etc., etc., is what makes them oppresive. we execute people in this country to. rightly so, might I add. who here wants there tax dollars to paying for the food and lodging of a kid rapist. not me? that's for damn sure. China should have the right to execute..just not for unreasonable purposes.

also, how come, instead of throwing third grade insults at each other, you people aren't understanding the big picture here? Yes, the Chinese are oppressive and corrupt. but guess what? they are also OUR BIGGEST TRADING PARTNERS. If the west is so holy and good and China is so evil WHY ARE GIVING THEM BUSINESS?!?!?!

The cold war had its bullshit elements of unnecessary paranoia on both sides of the iron curtain, but it least there was an IRON CURTAIN!!!

hate the Chinese? fine. hate them. and untie to stop shipping our jobs oversees to them. savy?

finally there is a sense of irony that people cannot complain about the west because the west is free and your taking it for granted that it is. but if i can't say "America sucks" then is this really a free nation?

these are points none of you are addressing. just though I'd point them out.

Um...you can say 'America sucks'. People do it all the time. They do it on the internet. They do it in the streets. They do it everywhere. Which is why America doesn't suck. Which makes you kind of an idiot for saying it.

p.s. the Iron Curtain wasn't such a hot-shit thing for people caught on the wrong side of it, because things done on that side of it were as bad as what the Nazis did. Worse, if you want to evaluate it purely from a numerical standpoint. Begin by considering the planned famine in the Ukraine, but remember that's just the beginning. And Mao dwarfs both Hitler and the European commies in body count. But it has been fashionable for some time to ignore the victims of the extrem left while worshipping the victims of the extreme right. That is a tragic injustice, but it probably goes a long way in explaining our soft attitude toward civil rights in China. That, and of course, greed at the marketing potential

We were on the right side of that 'cold war' conflict. Communism was as evil as Naziism. Those who don't see the truth of that are woefully mistaken.

this is a good concept, when you see and ad and think you can come up with something like that than thats a compliment, because you would've liked to come up with something like this.

First of all joeybear(whatever that's supposed to signify), chill the fuck out. You're kinda killing whatever trivial small- time victory you had over crispyone(even more ridiculous) or whatever by getting taunted. You honestly should write a blog man this is a space for advertising. If you have such a strong case, take it somewhere else. Crisp one grow up, man. What are you trying to prove? At least the other guy's trying to prove something. The ADVICE about this space applies to you too. Joeybear we all know only too well about China and have known for ages now but don't you dare side with the American government either, however patriotic you might be. People shout about their hatred for America for a reason, did you ever consider that? You call people ignorant when you have facts wrong yourself. Prisoners in Guantanamo Bay are not only Islamic, they have people who are supposedly "potential enemies of the state" from all over the world- Africa, Eastern Europe, South America, non- Islamic Indians, the list goes on. Not to mention the amount of money your country owes China, or the number of AMERICAN jobs you've let them have. Or the sheer amount of import- export between China and America. These 2 countries trade more than most of the world economy combined and now China's wisened up to it, which is ruining your country's economy further. So do us all a favor, if you are going to propagate some American bullshit, GET A BLOG! And on this site please talk about the ad and not global issues we have enough "unbiased" CNN for that.

Please note I'm not anti- American or pro- Chinese or anything, I just don't like seeing nationalistic comments on a website meant for a global community.

You wrote "don't you dare side with the American government", and "if you are going to propagate some American bullshit", and then you claim you're not anti-American.

Interesting. If you're not anti-American, I'd hate to see somebody who is.

China's human rights record sucks. But if the creatives involved in this scam checked with their management, it would find the thing vetoed real quick. China is the ONLY growth market in advertising right now. In fact there are only two markets in advertising: the US and China. Everything else is a sideshow. And no multi-nat is going to risk a banning order over some crap scam ad.

zia jian wo de hao peng you.

hey you dumb idiot if you're in advertising you need to do some serious research before you go running your mouth off...go see something called the Goldman Sachs BRIC Report- the whole world has i dunno how it got past you...BRIC for Brazil, Russia, India, China- the four biggest growth markets of this century and fyi, advertising in the russian and indian market have grown and will continue to grow exponentially more than america or china...so fuck off back to your ignorant chinese job that misinforms you

hey guy who shut up joey and crispy...where are you from eh?you're contradicting yourself...no harm in telling us you're anonymous anyway...saying shit about one government and barely a line about the other kinda makes you seem like slipped on your own vomit.from china by any chance?or russia, brazil, india maybe?the guy after you is right..."If you're not anti-American, I'd hate to see somebody who is."

wow this is getting worse...it's been a while since i actually saw an opinion about the ad on this thread...ivan man i don't mean to tell you how to do your job or anything but is there any way we can ban idiots like joeybear, crispone etc who evidently dunno much about advertising and prefer political debates in inappropriate forums?which eventually turn nasty and take a racist, nationalist and homophobic turn?i know i'm a guest too but some of the guests here take it too far...towards the end of the thread one guest even tried to reach neutral ground between those two idiots (Please note I'm not anti- American or pro- Chinese or anything, I just don't like seeing nationalistic comments on a website meant for a global community) and he got shot down coz he criticized one government more than the other (saying shit about one government and barely a line about the other kinda makes you seem like slipped on your own vomit). these dumb shits shouldn't even be discussing governments and their activities here! ADS of the world people!no offense ivan but please, people like me in the ad industry who come here to view ads do not need this

Everyone is always dissin' China. Saying that everything they make is no good and now this. I think I speak for all the Asians when I say this. People always think bad of others countries and when I say people I mean Americans. im not saying all Americans Im just saying some. America has its own faults and believe me there alot. America is always trying to go to other countries like they own the world. Well here is a little newsflash you dont. Politics are so shady. America cant even help the people in its on country. Like why are there so much homeless people. Why isn't New Orleans the way it was before. because they wanted to make it a tourist attraction. So my point is Don't go talkin bout how bad other countries are if you arent any better

I am 100% positive this AD bring out more unfriendly discussion then all the others combined.

my point of view.

Clever and Strong Ideas, perfect timing + strong facts + debatable believes ( I know this will angry some, but please consider as Amnesty or anti-death sentence supporter )

However,
1 Graphically a bit weak, mostly due to the coloring, I know it is a Dark theme but the focus should be standing out on the red colored people.
2 If the Chinese runner look back a bit at the gun pointing, will be more meaningful and vivid.
3 The sport tag style word box is too much, a strong graphic just need a strong title, put it simple at the corner with Amnesty logo fits more.
4 Angle of view not good enough, you got a graphic, a concept, a fact but with too much details on a page kind of dulling them all,

The only down side in Ideas of this poster and probably the most argued is

It divided the moment of Focus.

The Olympic means more then sports to China, please don't use the World War Germany Olympic as reference.....it is a different story.
Not to mention not everyone are against death penalty due to...well you have to agree on there is not clear answer for this except beliefs, no overwhelming strong evidence held on both sides.
The East and West clash for power, the power not just for weapons, economy, human rights, happiness, but for the approval of one's existence.

I personally LIKE this AD and give it a 85/100.
As for the debut it bring out, I am a HK Chinese who loves the Beatles, lets just say,

Both sides need meanings to exist, none consider those are not just gain by competition.

Thanks for your time,I sincerely hope the debut can be more focus on the construct and ideas of a AD instead of beliefs.
