Creatives condemn Qatar World Cup sponsors Coca-Cola, McDonald's, Visa & Adidas with pro-slavery ads

Creatives have designed damning brand ads to criticise the sponsors of the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

The venue, which has been sullied by accusations of corruption, unfair working conditions, unfavourably high temperatures and a hostile attitude towards homosexuals, has come under fire of late.

To pressurise brands such as Coca-Cola, McDonald's, Visa and Adidas into dropping their support of the competition, as Castrol, Johnson & Johnson, Continental, Sony and Emirates already have, a number of individuals boasting photoshop skills have subverted iconic brand ads.



Coca-Cola has previously expressed its disappointment at Fifa’s internal World Cup corruption report dubbed “incomplete and erroneous" by German judge Hans-Joachim Eckert.

The brand however remains on board for the competition in 2022.
