aol_ad.jpgAdrants points to an anti-Internet ad for AOL, running in Europe.
It calls the Internet “somewhere your identity can be stolen, your home invaded and your savings robbed …one of the most dangerous weapons every created…a place for mankind to exercise its darkest desires… ” In only 30 seconds, AOL’s agency, Grey London, squeezed in images of Osama Bin Laden, Nazis, babies for sale, the atom bomb, the klu klux klan and a whole lot more.
Freaking weird, especially considering that AOL has always been marketed as family-friendly and easy to use. My prediction: AOL will shut down before the end of 2006. Then maybe the AOL software discs I use for coasters will be worth something on eBay.
