Skip to comments.Obama kisses Chavez in new Benetton ad
Posted on 11/16/2011 5:23:10 PM PST by GR_Jr.
Benetton returns to its controversial marketing roots with a new campaign that features President Obama and other world leaders engaging in a kiss. In two separate ads, Obama is seen kissing Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez, and Chinese President Hu Jintao.
The Unhate Foundation, founded by the Italian clothing company, is an advocacy group for tolerance. The controversial ad campaign is an attempt for Benetton to regain its status from the United Colors ads that regularly shocked viewers with subjects that had nothing to do with clothing: A priest kissing a nun, a man dying of AIDS, a just-born baby with umbilical cord still attached, a trio of real human hearts.
In the new campaign, the leaders of North and South Korea lock lips, and the Pope kisses Ahmed Mohamed el-Tayeb, the Imam of al-Azhar mosque in Egypt. The Vatican condemned the image, and the company decided to remove it from all publications after complaints. German Chancellor Angela Merkel smooches Nicholas Sarkozy, president of France (What will Carla Bruni think?). Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu also share a kiss. The campaign was inspired by a kiss between Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev and East German communist leader Erich Honecker in 1979.

Obama looks like he’s getting off on kissing Chavez, disgusting fag that he is...
Benetton is notorious in Argentina.
When you’re a politician, you have to kiss a lot of asses.
As Ernest would say “EeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeEEEWWWWWWWWWWWHHHHHHH!”
Obama is thinking, ‘If only it could be true.’
‘Unhate’. How fatuous and vapid can you get.
I never heard of them until last week when I saw some weird ad with a Black woman breast feeding a white baby.
I would think the Obama campaign would absolutely hate this ad.
He could be kissing his wife for all we know; these posters are all photoshops. The Pope definitely did not kiss any Egyptian Imam, which is why the Vatican was upset.
LOL, yeah, it does bit a bit too close to home!
Such a lovely couple!
We need to have some photos of Obama kissing people’s rear ends. :)
Please post that this image was never altered, doctored, or photoshopped.
This is the President of the United States of America kissing another man full on the lips.
You have not heard of wet nurses? The Old South had black wet nurses for the babies of well-to-do whites.
