    it is rather excellent. why do you think it uses the iPod campaign to satirize (other than providing a striking image)?

    A nice contrast between a naive capitalism and the reality.

    Sometimes I think people are getting so exiting about some things when other parts of the world those things are not important at all. I mean, the distance from a imaginary world and the reality may be growing bigger.

    I think that is the sarcasm of the poster.

    It's a clever ad for Anchorman, a new Will Ferrell movie (tagline: "His news is bigger than your news"). And we all know that Will loves Apple, so he probably had something to do with this spoof that plays off the popular iPod ads.

    Release dates: July 9th (U.S.), September 10th (U.K.), October 28th (Austalia), January 20th, 2005 (Germany)

    I really don't buy this theory. Still , the film looks great - Ferrell is super.

    My only clue is that the photo has the movie poster on top of the iRaq posters. So I guessed we're looking at underground marketing. Only a guess.

    Oh, i see that, now. But the two campaigns are clearly totally separate - they just happened to paste it over Will ("He was glorious!")
