UPDATE: WWF Condems Unauthorized Ad One Good Reason to Never Give One Red Cent to the World Wildlife Federation


AdFreak: 9/11 was nothing, according to new WWF ad
Just in time for the anniversary of 9/11 comes this tasteless, nightmarish print ad for the World Wildlife Fund, showing dozens of planes headed for lower Manhattan.

UPDATE: Ad is bogus. WWF - WWF Strongly Condemns Unauthorized Ad Campaign -
“WWF strongly condemns this offensive and tasteless ad and did not authorize its production or publication. It is our understanding that it was a concept offered by an outside advertising agency seeking our business in Brazil.
