Censorship Tells the Wrong Story

Hmmm...I'm not sure how I feel about these strategically pixelated images from the ad campaign, "Censorship Tells the Wrong Story. "To make a point, the new anti-censorship ad campaign for Reporters Without Borders purposefully blurs the line between decency and reality... Created by the firm Ogilvy & Mather, each image features the text “Censorship tells the wrong story,” and uses strategic pixelization to alter perception and add new meaning."

   

I mean I get it, but I dunno if it works. Seems a little bit "email forward-y"...then again, I might be struck differently if I came across in a magazine rather than on the internet, where we're so used to seeing stuff like this.

It's not funny, but maybe I am provoked? How do these strike you? Share your thoughts in the comments below.

On face value I find these images rather amusing.
