I saw that on FB, Tactless in the extreme, Q-Media are at fault though, not Coca-Cola I would suggest.

They just don't think.

Im sorry, did you just use the words 'think' in the same sentence as describing anyone in advertising / marketing? To do that is to imply that they have feelings....

I'm think this was inadvertent, and that marketing was oblivious to the Mall fire; or am I being too optimistic on the good intentions of those responsible for approving the add?

Coca Cola would have no idea but someone at Q Media should of realised or failing that the person that put them up should of thought that it was maybe inappropriate. Just highlights the general stupidity and insensitivity of the region I suppose.

The advert was taken down..Coca Cola apologised, admitting that they knew nothing of the fire. The fault lies with Q media. Not good for them..would you hire them to do your media campaign?

The most amazing thing is that the bloke who lost his three kids apparently worked for Q-Media. So, you would think that they might just be aware of the reaction. But not really - it's situations like this that remind you of how blunt and insensitive Doha can be.

That is mindbogglingly stupid and assholish. Doesn't seem possible that whoever approved the add placement was unaware of the circumstances.

The most disgusting thing is that the guy from NZ Martin Weekes who lost his triplets in the fire used to work for Q Media !

Now that goes below low in anybody's book even for Qatar .
