Avaaz took out an advertisement timed to coincide with a summit of EU leaders to try to push for support of a climate finance package and set the stage for Copenhagen in December. The proximity of the summit to Halloween lent itself to this concept.
The ad, made by CEDC, was published in the thursday’s international edition of the Financial Times.
Pictured (left to right): Donald Tusk (as Frankenstein), Nicolas Sarkozy (as Dracula), Angela Merkel (as a skeleton) and Gordon Brown (as a sorcerer). The text of the advertisement is below.
“Brown, Merkel, Sarkozy and Tusk: don’t be monsters. Use this halloween to avert real-life climate horror.”
