What Does An Iraqi Public Service Announcement Look Like Nowadays?

Well here's one...

Brought to you by No Terror...couldn't find out who was behind the campaign on their website...they seem a little secretive about their identity.

I have to admit, I'm a tad skeptical that a television ad like this is going to dissuade a committed fanatic from carrying out a suicide attack. I actually found the action movie style of it all kind of makes the suicide bomber and the ensuing mayhem look sorta badasss cool. I'm thinking they probably should have focused a bit more on the heart-wrenching aftermath and toned down the terrorist action flick drama and suspense.

Maybe they should have hired David Lynch to direct it. Here's a NY City public service announcement he made. Only Lynch could make littering seem far more disturbing than a devastating suicide attack on a bunch of civilians. o.O

Yep, the littering ad is far more sinister than the suicide bombing one. The former was a bit too focused on cool computer graphics (Matrix-esque) and could have been more eerie.
