French Online Gambling Site Pokes Fun At JFK Assasination


We're pretty sure some people are going to have their panties in a bunch over this one. While we're all for humor and making light of serious topics, there are some things that are sacred. In advertising, it's never a good idea to touch on topics like Hitler or 9/11.

Or the JFK assassination. But French online betting site, PMU, seems to have no problem sharing an alternative scenario of the fateful day in Dealey Plaza back in 1963.

Is the ad funny? Sort of. Has it been long enough to poke fun? That's an individual decision. Is it ever a good idea to poke fun at tragedy? Not usually but, then again, humor has a funny way of making certain things OK. What do you think?
