My Life, My Death, My Billboard

BLF is at it again.

June 27, 2010
San Francisco

The Billboard Liberation Front (BLF) is honored to announce a new marketing partnership with Philip Morris (PM) that finally brings together the rugged sense of American independence with your most important choice as a consumer: your death. The message of “My Life. My Death. My Choice.” informs and empowers the consumer to choose, as their god given right, how they want to die. Philip Morris brings this message to the consumer to remind them that some rights are inalienable in life as they are in death.

Is this a billboard takeover or an ad? Why does anyone think this is good? Im starting to think that this blog imight be misguided. Anyone who accepts money for advertising for tobacco should be ashamed. Unless i'm missing something, I just don't get the appeal, the message, the value. Please explain!
