What do you guys think of these? Photoshop has definitly come a long way. I think some of them are really smart, others are going more for the shock factor, and some arn't very effective at all.

I think most of them are well done.

The WWF and Amnesty International ones especially.

Very well done. Culture jamming works you know. Ad busters are intense, it gets right to the consequence
I'll post some later

Some of those are just plain ridiculous. Such as the climate change one that shows a half man half fish thing. But some of them were particularly well done.

No, not at all, the ad was just completely ridiculous is all. For one, no average person would make the connection that climate change would raise the oceans, flooding major cities, then over thousands of years we would evolve into fish people capable of breathing underwater and swimming with great speed.

I agree Axe, that one seemed really far fetched.
The Hitler-sex-(rape?) one threw me off a bit also. I get the message about AIDS killing but def a bit weird.

They're meant to be over-the-top and exaggerated... That's the whole point.
