Don't mean this.. but isn't it ironical to see this work coming from the nation which produced the most hated person ever.. Poor.

Sorry, that's not 100% correct: Austria "produced" him, Germany just let him grow...

How can you compare something that happend almost 60 years ago with an advertisement. just because it is from that country. That just makes no sense at all.

Not outstanding, but okay. The comment by Creative420 is out of place anyway.

thats right, take the piss out of a dead person by drawing thier face on a flipping potato. If i was Teresas family i wouldnt appreciate this.
ps. in terms of advertising, this sucks big ass too. Germans should stay away from trying to do funny ads

Oh no - that's just...wrong. It's supposed to be funny but it's just playing on the "good" by exploitng someone who did good deeds. Personally, I think Monther Theresa should only be used to promote good in the world; aything else is in bad taste (no pun intended).

chucknorris, you must be german or you may have some german blood.
are nuns not allowed to have sisters, brothers, cousins?

what does being german have to with anything?

I just think this ad is funny, and that it doesn't offend anyone.

and no, I am the farthest one can be from being german. I'm from brazil.

I think its a cool way to illustrate the point. Cheesy? Yes.

But effective nonetheless.

Its possible this is a terribly good ad.

ok, teresa bealived in fisical punishment, poberty, suffering of the ill and recived founds from cuestioned people.

gandhi was a pedophile with an enema fetiche.

the dalailama was a facist that had a monarquic regime in tibet with thousands of slaves, and does everything in his reach to get that regime back. I guess is easy to be peacefull when you just have to do that.

Ok, it has nothing to do with the campaing cos these are by the mayority as references of "good" but still wanted to say it.

i agree.
don't really like the term "good" in reference to persons. it's a human want to divide the world into good and bad. and for famous people, it's either angel or demon. in the end, it always depends on which side you're on.

anyway, this ad's not trying to be profound, but funny, in a cheesy kind of way. so i think it doesn't really matter.

i like the thinking on these, certainly an interesting approach to selling a potato dish, but i agree that these figures are somewhat controversial. not everyone sees them all as 'good', which could get in the way of your message. they would certainly stand out here in america where most food product advertising is just plain awful.

Borrowed interest. Might as well made the potato look like a baby.
