Osama Bin Laden Video Promotes Fashion Brand
We've seen the many directions in which fashion brands travel to promote their wares. We've had Dolce and Gabanna toy with rape. We've had target employ holographs. We've had Nolita use an anorexic French actress to sell its wares. We've had Wrangler spread fashion mannequin around Paris. We've had hottie-wear promoted with voyeuristic videos. We've had former Russian leader Mikhail Gorbachev hawking Louis Vuitton. We've had Sisley doing, well, anything and everything that has to do with sex to call attention to its fashions.
We could go on but then we'd never get around to telling you about Osama Bin Laden promoting Attentats in one of his famous terrorist videos. OK, it's not really Osama but some would look upon this with as much disdain as they did the Dolce & Gabanna rape ad. Us, we think it's funny. Especially when, at the end, it's so obviously revealed it's a joke.
