The Abusters spoof gallery is super well made. Wikipedia defines Adbusters (or the Media Foundation) as a, "a not-for-profit, anti-consumerist organization founded in 1989 by Kalle Lasn and Bill Schmalz in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada." Basically, they are probably BFFs with Annie Leonard and I figured I might as well cram them both into the same week.
The images are simply astounding, as well as hilaylay. The group itself is, like all fringe groups, a lot extreme. But the ads are fun to flip through. So what the hey, entertainment is entertainment. Great execution. grade: A! (From Wikipedia)
