President Bush is called an “evil bastard” in a series of billboard ads for a restaurant chain in New Zealand.
This billboard featuring President Bush in New Zealand was victimized by vandals
Bush’s image is featured in commercials for Hell Pizza Deliveries, with several slogans that include “Hell: Too Good For Some Evil Bastards,” and “Even Hell Has Its Standards.”
The company responsible has a devilish theme throughout its website, including 666, the biblical number of the beast, as part of its phone number, and pitches such as “Putting the vice in service, Hell prides itself on damned good food and great service.”
The chain not only jabs on the American commander in chief, but features an online poll with New Zealand politicos, asking participants to vote who is going to hell first.
Outdoor Advertising New Zealand is said to be reviewing the Bush billboards, and deciding if the Advertising Standards Authority needs to be involved.
According to NZCity, Hell’s spokesman Matthew Blomfield, says the company “expected to cause a bit of a stir,” as it sought to be a “little edgy, instead of bland, boring advertising.”
This is not the first billboard President Bush has starred in.
Her billboard shows Bush, Vice President Cheney, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, former Attorney General John Ashcroft and others with the message, “Dear America, We lied to you for your own good. Now trust us.”
