Creepy Ad Watch

by Patrick Appel

WWF is denying that this spot is theirs but have admitted that WWF in Brazil authorized a similar print ad and have apologized, saying that the “the inexperience of some professionals" at both WWF and the advertising firm is at fault and that the ad was not meant in "bad faith or disrespect toward American suffering." I'm inclined to agree with Allahpundit that the denial of the video doesn't make a lot of sense:

Really? So some wily amateur video producer out there happened to stumble across a print ad that only ran once in South America and was so taken with it that he churned out a slick animated version on his own dime?
