Condom ad + Mao + China = Oops

Just got this one via the ever intriguing ChinaSMACK – it seems that Doc Morris Pharmacies, a German condom manufacturer, has created a series of ads that are just a tad bit controversial.  Nothing like combining the likenesses of Mao, Hitler, and Bin Laden in your advertisement to create some slightly negative buzz.

No word on whether they market their condoms in China, but I’m kind of hoping not given the reaction they’ve generated in the Mainland.  Grey Worldwide appears to be the agency behind the adverts.
