Kids: don't do the Osama & courier ad-joke, it's been done.

Badland: 

Pretty much as soon as Osama was caught, and it was revealed that a courier had given him up, the jokes started flying on twitter and bets were hedged on when adkids would make ads for Fedex based on this. Adgrunt @Purplesime even warned against it:

"Dear ad students: Don't do the bin Laden courier ad for DHL or Fed-Ex. I know, it's tempting..."

Tempting enough to already have been done? Of course! And not just once, but twice, as Joelapompe shows here, once for Beta Express Shipping, and once for Deppon Express Shipping. @joelapompe always has to have the last word when it comes to Badlanders. Show-off. ;)
