I am totally in agreement with Soz on this one--i have never understood or liked the idea in advertising (or any other form of media expression) of portraying people as dead or injured. (Don't like images of bloody or bruised people).

I don't like it either -- and don't get it at all.
I understand that in advertising sometimes you need a shocking image to stand out but why anyone would want a portrait of them playing dead is beyond me.
I'll add that I also hated the "heroin chic" trend from the late 80s - the hollow eyed strung out look always gave me the heebie-jeebies.
