Smurf Ad Bombs

Even though everybody on the Internet has probably seen the Unicef Smurf bombing video about eight dozen times, it's still funny as hell to see the little blue bastards get bombed to kingdom come. And judging by the blogosphere buzz, I'm far from the only person who thinks that way.

If the advertisement was supposed to get people thinking about the horrors of war and the need to prevent them, it has failed spectacularly, because most people are treating it as satire.

The Smurfs are only slightly less annoying than Barney, and if that fruity purple dinosaur got blown to bits on a Unicef commercial, we'd all be laughing that up too.
