A billboard promoting AMC’s hit The Walking Dead has sparked a bit of controversy in the UK this week, but not because of the show’s violent content.
The huge banner – brandishing the tagline “What makes us human?” – for the zombie drama isn’t just visible, it’s unavoidable for people walking by.
Which would probably be alright, except for what’s inside the building:
Bad taste? Marketing genius? A hybrid of the two? Who knows!
“There must have been somewhere else they could placed it that would have shown a degree of insight and sensitivity,” said a peeved resident.
Advertiser Clear Channel reportedly issued this apology:
“Clear Channel apologises for any offense caused by the unfortunate juxtaposition of this advertisement, which was certainly not intended.”
“We arranged to have it removed right away.”
