911 moscownews The Very Best / Worst of 9 11 Themed Ads

The Moscow News‘ “Hard to Explain” Print Ad. “Things hard to explain, in a language you understand,” the Moscow News advertised in front of a papier-mâché post-crash Twin Towers by advertising giant BBDO.

The “Rebuild It” Lego Print Ad. It’s Lego, so it’s hard to get too angry, but on the other hand, one would think: Of all brands, doesn’t Lego know better than to go for the childhood-trauma/construction-toy-obsessed-adult crossover market? Apparently not. The better ad, here, is obviously to make a Lego version of Park51 and note, simply, that “There’s less hassle this way.”

Advertising adds value to a product by changing our perception, rather than the product itself. Rory Sutherland makes the daring assertion that a change in perceived value can be just as satisfying as what we consider “real” value — and his conclusion has interesting consequences for how we look at life.
