Copenhagen: Greenpeace's Ole' Bama


Just days away from Copenhagen, Greenpeace and have created a series of posters for the Copenhagen airport visioning world leaders, now past their prime, having missed the chance to act. Subverting Obama’s good looks and vitality (same, particularly, with Sarkozy) and exploiting the fact that time goes by faster than most of us like to think, the concept — playing the “mortality card” — hits home.

Greenpeace billboard slideshow + Merkel. More stills at current.
