    Not funny at all. Caption in the right corner says "The Tsunami killed 100 times more people than 9/11

    NOTE: The WWF says it never approved this ad and is condemning it.

    It was bought to the WWF (Not world wrestling Federation) And immediately rejected.

    Its pretty focking sad how quick people forget what happened. I know my wife's two cousins never will, one is NYPD (he retired early because of 911) her other cousin is still FDNY(he lost 6 brothers from his firehouse).

    It is pretty sad how they could come up with this.. I guess in Brazil they lack compassion for us. Actually, they do lack it..

    They seem to forget that one is an unfortunate natural disaster and the other is willful deliberate human act of malice.

    It was a joke! I did read the whole thing. I guess my sarcasm doesn't always come out on the intranets.

    That shit is disgusting, but I googled and found that this ad was never publicized and got rejected on the spot:

    http://www.wwf.org.br/informacoes/english/?21261/Note-of-Clarification
    Note of Clarification

    Posted on 01 September 2009




    WWF-Brazil asserts emphatically that the message of the ad "Tsunami" does not reflect under any circumstances the opinion of the organization and its staff members. We do vehemently repudiate its publication and circulation.

    Relating acts of terrorism, which killed thousands of people, with the effects of climate change is abhorent and has nothing to do with the message that we seek to convey in achieving our goals of conserving nature and using natural resources sustainably.

    Created by the publicity agency DM9DDB, this piece was presented to WWF-Brazil in December 2008, and we did not approve its circulation.

    According to DM9DDB, "the Tsunami ad for World Wildlife Fund was created by a team at DDB Brazil in December 2008. That team is no longer with the agency. DDB Brazil apologizes to anyone who was offended or affected by the ad. It should never have been made and it does not portray the philosophy of the agency".

    Due to the offensive nature of the message conveyed by the publicity piece, WWF-Brazil profoundly regrets this incident.
