eBay vs. Sony

Adland: 
Badland: 

‘Tis the night before Christmas and all through Adland,
not a creature is stirring, not even a name brand.
My copy is hung by the chimney with care,
in hopes that a holiday badlander, soon will be there.

Back in 2000, Sony created a series of ads where good 'ol St. Nick is drugged and kidnapped. The pre-9/11 terrorists threatened that X-Mas would be canceled if people didn't shop at SonyStyle.com. The ads were pulled because the client thought they would be offensive.

Fast forward to 2007, post-9/11 kidnappers from eBay Australia abduct Santa and everyone's OK with it!

So, they're comparing themselves with kidnappers? What's next, fast food joints comparing the nutritional value of their food to suicide bomber attacks?
