Normally I don’t post nudity or images that would be considered really risky. However, I think there are certain times and places for images that elicit strong reactions. And certainly when it comes to major issues like smoking, or horrible diseases like AIDS or Cancer, I think displaying these harsh images are warranted…. even necessary.
Because unfortunately people just seem to ignore how big of a problem these diseases are in this world. And if they do realize it, they’re certainly not showing it.
Clearly the people who created these AIDS ads wanted to send a message. And if people don’t get that message after these ads, I don’t know what will work
WARNING: Some images are explicit

German AIDS Ad
European HIV charities condemned a new German AIDS ad featuring Adolf Hilter, Josef Stalin and Saddam Hussein’s look-alikes having sex with naked women. The tag line of the ad is “Aids is a mass murderer” referring to the fact that 30 million people die of AIDS every year. This is the video

Not even Superman is safe.
French AIDS Prevention Ad
These are just plain scary.
German AIDS Awareness
“It’s easy to lose your head when you’re horny”

Might as well use them for an AIDS campaign.
MTV Get Edgy
They showed this ad in Brazil and the text reads “Except for AIDS, nothing has changed”.
French AIDS Ad
The logo says “AIDS does not concern you?”
“Each time you sleep with someone, you also sleep with his past”. Campaign to promote HIV tests.

This is pretty hardcore.
