Creator of Kia pedophillia ad also made WWF 9/11 scam ad.
Ok Cannes – it’s time to step up and ban this guy like you promised. Douchebag and scam artist extraordinaire Rodolfo Sampaio, Chief Creative Officer for Moma Propaganda in Sao Paulo, Brazil has been caught yet again entering a fake ad in an award show. If the name sounds familiar, Rodolfo was the lowlife who caused the uproar for entering a tasteless 9/11-themed ad for the WWF.
AdLand has the full story, but the offensive print ad for Kia won a Silver Lion at Cannes this year.
When my post about what to do with scammers was adopted by The One Club, Cannes was conspicuously silent on the matter. When they finally did address the scam issue it was a charade. But they did say they would ban individuals involved.
So will you Cannes? Or will you make your award show even more ridiculous by turning yet another blind eye? I fully support AdLand, who has rightfully asked people to tweet their displeasure to @Cannes_Lions.
