not true. the concept and executional idea has a lot more power than most of the 'use condom-crap'.

The commercial is nice, but it's true that the print isn't well executed. Good concept, anyway.

Holy S*** this is bad. Hey Ivan, do you actually look at these ads before you post them? You can't possibly think this is good work.

Not every ad is good. This is a showcase. Not an award show. Hope that clarifies it. ;)

No, Aids is not a mass murderer anymore, except in Africa, where is the real tragedy today. Just because rich countries don't give a shit.

People who have access to the cocktail pills can have a almost normal life.
Less than 500 people are killed by Aids in Germany per year, country where this campaign was created. It's less than heart attacks, cancer, car accidents, etc.

This campaign offends directly the HIV positives. It's completely tasteless and poor of concept.

Prevention campaigns are important in every pandemic. That's one of the main reasons the number of new cases decreases every year in developed countries. But good campaigns need good arguments, which is not the case of this absurd.

Please, think a little bit more when creating.

I really like the ad. It is daring and definitely got a lot of attention. Especially in Germany Hitler is still a delicate topic. This way they could be sure to get media attention and to be talked about. Isn't that the aim of this campaign.Talk about it, think about it! The mixture of esthetics and shock is well done.

Brilliant idea.. Suits the mass murderer Stalin.. AIDS = Stalin = Hitler = Bush
