No Feedback on "Fine Art as Advertising"

At first, visiting the page do guarantees you a good slice of fun. Past this first feeling you’ll notice that some of these adds are extreme in the sense that they arouse some questions regarding ethics in advertising; before it calls for a more serious and interesting debate on the theme of deterrence in information warfare, meaning, for example: “If you manage to let published that one on the theme of crucifixion, then I’ll undermine your set of cultural values too with those ones made by Picasso, or even worse.”

Quite interesting examples anyway.
