Retailer Benetton using shock tactics to thrust themselves into the spotlight with these controversial ads of world leaders kissing. As part of their "Unhate" campaign, they're urging leaders and citizens of the world to combat the "culture of hatred."
Benetton hopes the campaign will contribute to the creation of a culture of tolerance and combat hatred, the group writes. It plans a series of live actions in which young people will post the images of the smooching world leaders "on the walls of locations symbolic of the desperately-needed peace process: Tel Aviv, New York, Rome, Milan, Paris."
