I can't help but feel it's in bad taste for an agency or client to try to capitalize on a tragedy. I don't care what these brands have to say about the bombing... I know it is all ultimately an attempt to sell me shoes.

Also, it should say "on" the same team.

It's icky. But the intentions are good.

At least let the bodies cool before you capitalize on their deaths.

i don't think this ad is in a bad taste. it is in fact brands showing their support to Boston.

This is a ghost, from a freelance collective.

I don't think these brands signed on this.

I think you're right. The web address is their site. Pretty low trying to promote yourself on people's graves.

Damn, I didn't even see the URL. Yeah, that's a blatant lack of decency on their part.

If you want to do a spec ad about a tragedy like this, at least do it for some humanitarian organization, such the Red Cross and put THEIR web address on it, not yours.

Since this is obviously a ghost, there should be no mention of time of publication. I'm not against the fact that spec ads are uploaded on the front page, on the contrary, but they should at least be identified as such.

Damn, these guys, Fast Mood, aren't even a real agency, just a freelance collective. Way to burn yourself in the business.

Creativity, zero. Effectiveness, zero. Taste, zero. AWFUL.
