WHAT THE IT FACTOR PRODUCTION’S HAS IN COMMON WITH UNITED COLORS OF BENETTON
United Colors of Benetton first made it into the spotlight with its original, yet controversial,  ”United Colors” publicity campaign. The latter originated when professional photographer Oliviero Toscani was given carte blanche by the Benetton management. Under Toscani’s direction, ads were created that contained striking images unrelated to any actual products being sold by the company.

These graphic, billboard-sized ads included depictions of a variety of shocking subjects, one of which featured a deathbed scene of a man (AIDS activist David Kirby) dying from AIDS.  Others included a bloodied, unwashed newborn baby with umbilical cord still attached, which was highly controversial. This 1991 advert prompted more than 800 complaints to the British Advertising Standards Authority during 1991 and was featured in the reference book Guinness World Records 2000 as ‘Most Controversial Campaign’. Others included a black stallion covering a white mare, close-up pictures of tattoos reading “HIV Positive” on the bodies of men and women, a cemetery of many cross-like tombstones, a collage consisting of genitals of persons of various races, a priest and nun about to engage in a romantic kiss, pictures of inmates on death row, an electric chair, an advert showing a boy with hair shaped into the devil’s horns, three different hearts with “black”, “white” and “yellow” written onto them (from March 1996), and a picture of a bloodied t-shirt and pants riddled with bullet holes from a soldier killed in the Bosnian War (this one appeared in February 1994).  Most of the advertisements, although not all, had a plain white background, and in most the company’s logo served as the only text accompanying the image.

And how is this similar to The It Factor Productions? Well, you might have seen The It factor Productions’ Anderson Davis in the news recently for the controversial “Zesty Guy” campaign.
