In an effort to provide abused children with a safe way to reach out for help, a Spanish organization called the Aid to Children and Adolescents at Risk Foundation, or ANAR for short, created an ad that displays a different message for adults and children at the same time.
The secret behind the ad’s wizardry is a lenticular top layer, which shows different images at varying angles. So when an adult—or anyone taller than four feet, five inches—looks at it they only see the image of a sad child and the message: “sometimes, child abuse is only visible to the child suffering it.” But when a child looks at the ad, they see bruises on the boy’s face and a different message: “if somebody hurts you, phone us and we’ll help you” alongside the foundation’s phone number.
The ad is designed to empower kids, particularly if their abuser happens to be standing right next to them. And while this is a great and worthwhile use of lenticular images, how long will it be before toy companies start doing to the same thing to hawk their products directly at kids?
awesome. fucking awesome.
Don’t remember who this was but for some reason i love this photo!
radicalproblems said: Oh I know. It’s fucking Ridiculous. Just proof enough that the FBI are still insane/psychopaths for any kind of threat to the state. Even if they haven’t been a threat in years and is a political refugee in Cuba.
Agreed! it also means that the definition of terrorist is so expansive as to be meaningless. But I suppose we knew that.
I’m grumps about it.
Apparently I have too O: Final weeks suck.
I don’t have an excuse at all.. Not one.
Listening to it now. I’m fucking furious. Can the Bay give Assata asylum please?
Usually even the most heinous killers are buried without incident. That’s not true for Tamerlan Tsarnaev, one of the suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings, whose body has become the subject of angry protests.
This is what happens when I don’t watch Democracy Now everyday. I totally miss everything.
