Earlier this month, the TV ad for Le Monde magazine made the rounds of ad blogs. I thought it got talked about mainly because it mentioned Berlusconi – the idea by itself was not out of the world. Various publications have used the route of ‘celebrities’ world view’ – George Bush being their favourite whipping boy. The print ad for Le Monde won a Silver at the Epica Awards, 2009.
