Cool Ad, Cool Placement

I love this spoof teleshopping ad, by Mother for Amnesty International, which supposedly advertises AK-47's.

And where did I see it? Sitting at home, before Lord Of War on DVD.

(Trivia: Lord Of War director Andrew Niccol, who also wrote The Truman Show and Gattaca, is a former creative at BBDO London).

Great idea, fantastic placing.

Loved it - and also the info on which agency Niccol used to work for - any more tidbits on ad agency staff going on to become Hollywood directors or successful novelists would be useful too!
