It is hard to believe, but dictators are also afraid of something in this world, and that is…white mice? Well, not the animal, but the computer mice. This is all obviously a symbol on the social network and the strong influence and power it has nowadays.
It is logical that this bothers the world’s leaders, and that is what directors Oppmann Simon, Peter Römmelt and Daniela Friedel wanted to express in their “Scared Dictators Campaign”. This campaign is an award winning ad that was actually ISHR’s (International Society for Human Rights) idea.

From The Raw Story:
Like the old song goes, one of these things is not like the other…
However, remind a police officer in Corpus Christi, Texas of those famed Cookie Monster lyrics and they’re likely to give you an annoyed look.That’s because a recently discovered cache of plants, initially pegged by officials speaking to local news as “one of the largest marijuana plant seizures in the police department’s history,” turned out to be a relatively common prairie flower of little significance.Texas officers ultimately spent hours laboring to tag and remove up to 400 plants from a city park, discovering only after a battery of tests that they had been sweating over mere Horse Mint, a member of the mint family — effectively turning their ambitious drug bust into mere yard work.The plants, which bear very few aesthetic similarities to cannabis, were reported by an unnamed youth who came across them while riding a bike in the park around 8 p.m. on Thursday.
