It's time for another revolution
I think this is a very nice commercial. It grabs people's attention, provokes thoughts, sparks discussion. Many people here in Germany describe it as tasteless, as Fidel Castro, Lenin, Mao, etc are shown here.
Revolutionary: constituting or bringing about a major or fundamental change
It's quite contradictory, as you see how they bring the protagonists and the antagonists together. Well, be it Gandhi or Lenin, they're indeed striving for a change. So, I think we can call them revolutionists, no matter how the revolution turned out in the end.
Though what Marx said ''Che, it's about what people need.'' is a bit inappropriate, judging on the history of most of these so-called 'revolutionists', the adv. company still did a great job.
Anyway, the cast in order of appearance:
Mao Zedong (Tse-tung)
Wladimir Iljitsch Lenin
Ho Chi Minh
Rosa Luxemburg (a notorious german democratic socialist) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosa_Luxemburg
Martin Luther King
just to make things clear, I am NOT a fan of marxism, socialism, nor communism.
