Buy Now - We Know Where You Live

While we are all here talking about brands and products; people over in Asia are making real progress in the definitions of what ads can be.

Take for example a guy named Chou Cheng-bao, supposedly of a Taiwanese gang; who sent what was effectively a commercial to a local station threatening to kill a rival gang member (and they aired it).

After all the talk of what brands can learn from Osama Bin laden (I'm sorry, I forget who it was that said it), here is another example to show that the underworld is ahead of everyone in marketing.

I like this. It like the Malboro Man coming on local Munich television and say "Hey, Marcus Brown, I'm gonna kill you". And slowly but surely he is.
