Rhythm House: 50Cent Voodoo

Online Piracy is killing your favourite artist.

Campaign strives to inform people that online piracy has grave repercussions on the very artists they love. Actual dolls were created and then shot. The voodoo pins in the shape of download cursors were actually poked onto the posters.

True. But the idea and art are pretty good.

whatever you do to 50 cent, he will never die anyway. yes it's original and nicely done. i gave 1 star cause i think piracy is like promotion, if you like the music and you want to support them, you can go to the store & buy the album. it makes extra awareness & popularity as well + 50 cent does not need my money, he's allready a zillionaire

I like the campaign too. It's by far the most visually engaging campaign I've seen on this subject, but it's not going to produce any results. I just like the creative approach; that's all.

Cool idea. They dont seem to have that many catholic nuns in India though, or someone might have mentioned it during the design-process... a basecap might have worked a little better.

Who cares. Piracy keeps internet and many companies alive.
