Wonder how you'd feel if it was a photo opped photo of Glenn Beck kissing Obama or Pelosi? Or you?

You know, "UnHate."

The stunning (albeit photoshopped) images are part of a new campaign by the United Colors of Benetton. Alessandro Benetton, executive deputy chairman, who presented the ads in Paris on Wednesday, said they were meant to promote the idea of "unhate," The Times Of India writes.

Benetton 'Unhate' Campaign Shows World Leaders Kissing
It does show how poorly we regard our leaders these days. But it's all right...they've earned it.

For starters, shoot me your picture. I'd like to photoshop your face with another picture and see how you like it when I post it all over.

Go ahead, give me permission and an image. Actually I don't need your permission just an image.

Well, if it doesn't have Janet Reno, Hillary Clinton, and Nancy Pelosi in a three-way make out session, I'm not buying.

I find it grotesque and revolting.

"Benetton hopes the campaign will contribute to the creation of a culture of tolerance and combat hatred" Sounds more like a homosexual agenda to me. The only one that isn't male/male is Merkel & Sarkozy.

Just yucky. I'm glad I have never purchased any of their products, and probably never will.

They are such an irrelevant company it's just sad.

I've never bought their products and never will.

AND
it would be interesting how all the "unhate" would go over should they show a Muslim man kissing a Jewish man.
