111118 — Kiss Kiss Bang Bang?

by Irina Bernebring Journiette

I know it’s been all over the Internet already but I absolutely love United Colors of Benetton’s new “un-hate” ad.

Above is the Pope kissing Ahmed Mohamed el-Tayeb. Tha Vatican has called it “totally unacceptable.”

Below Palestian leader Mahmoud Abbas is locking lips with Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The ad also features North Korean leader Kim Jong-il and Lee Myung-bak, President of South Korea…

…Angela Merkel in a clinch with French president Nicolas Sarkozy…

and Barack Obama doing the deed with both Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez…

and China’s leader Hu Jintao!

Let’s keep spreading the love!
