Dutch Queen’s Day posters with Obama and Putin removed

The board of Amsterdam Partners, responsible for the campaign I Amsterdam, decided to withdraw the Queen’s day poster with Obama and Putin. The company wanted to attract foreigners to the Dutch capital for Queen’s day on April 30th.

Obama and Putin are on the poster wearing a t-shirt saying “kiss me, I am drunk“. It is remarkable that this poster is withdrawn because nobody has complained, while only the French embassy complained about a poster with Sarkozy. Also, some fifty thousand Boomerang cards with the image of Putin and Obama are withdrawn.

The French president is shown hugging with his Italian counterpart Berlusconi. The embassy demanded to stop the campaign immediately, but Amsterdam Partners did not remove the posters.

Also Hillary Clinton is on several posters wearing a bikini and orange wig.
