Where Have All the Glowers Gone?
One I still think of often is the ad Saatchi & Saatchi did for the sin of wrath. It consisted of two black-and-white photos, one over the other. The top picture was a shot of Adolf Hitler in full rant mode. His fists were clenched and his face contorted in barely controlled rage. The bottom one showed a young man with almost exactly the same expression, except that this guy wasn’t an evil dictator. He was an anti-Vietnam War protestor screaming passionately for an end to an unjust war.
