While advertising and good taste are not comfortable bedfellows, these ads from Chile go further than most.

Images of Steve Jobs burying Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, Amy Winehouse burying prince William and his wife Kate, and Hosni Mubarek doing the same to Colonel Gadaffi do go a tad further than most.

Still, no doubt the ads – with the slogan “News travels fast” – will be a hit with awards juries.
