Plastic bag art

Plastic carrier bag with magnum force
How's this for irresponsible advertising? No, that isn't a real gun; it's a plastic bag designed to look as though the person carrying it is also armed with a pistol. One point of view is that these are "cool, creative bags...attractive and intriguing". Coxsoft Art's point of view is that if one innocent person is mistakenly shot dead by the police for carrying this design of bag, it is one person too many. The artwork is great, but should it be allowed on our streets? It puts a whole new meaning into the legal phrase "let the buyer beware".

Oh man, I've seen that same idea done in a far less controversial manner, HERE and HERE

Because it's the start of the working week?

Hi, Jacoblog. Thanks for the links to Ads of the World. Interesting website. The title link I gave on this blog has a good collection of these bags. One is a rather sick hanging man (rope handles hang the man as you lift the bag).
