Droid X Ad Shocking Resemblance to Abu Ghraib Torture Images

August 27, 2010 - Written By Chris Yackulic

I love advertising. Some of the most creative minds in the world come up with some of the best commercials we have ever seen. Unfortunately, there are some that make it through that shouldn’t. A great example of such an advertisement is one for the Droid X. The commercial has a shockingly similar appearance to some disturbing torture pictures that surfaced years ago from Abu Ghraib. You tell me. Do you see the resemblance in the picture above and below?

Was this a possible oversight on Verizon’s part or were they going for controversy as a way to advertise the Droid X? To me the resemblance is striking. I hope for Verizon’s sake this was an oversight and they did not realize what was going on. Someone had to have known about this. See the commercial below and tell me what YOU think!
