Benetton Reveals Most Provocative Ads Yet: Political Leaders Making Out!

Now this is how you make a comeback. After years of relatively tame ad campaigns, the United Colors of Benetton is releasing a new one that's possibly even more provocative than the shots of bullet-riddled soldiers or the ones of death row inmates.
Today, they revealed their newest initiative with the Unhate Foundation "to stimulate reflection on how politics, faith and ideas, even when they are divergent and mutually opposed, must still lead to dialogue and mediation.” In conjunction with the ads, there are global guerilla initiatives involving giant banners of our political leaders kissing each other. Click through to see all the surprising duos, and make sure to check out the UnHate Foundation. Now… everybody make out!
