Vienna: aggressive advertising campaign against dog dirt

The city government of Vienna started a new advertising campaign against excrements of dogs in parks and streets. Dog owners should receive the motivation to remove the dirt of their dogs when they see those advertisments.

One of the advertising slogans is “Geld Scheisser” which means something like “Money Shithead”, and should remind the people that one piece of a not disposed dog dirt costs 36 Euro fine. The advertisement poster with the lettering “Money Shithead” is illustrated with a black poodle.

The Socialdemocrats, who are responsible for the campaign, confirm that the advertisments are consciously aggressive and provocative. The Socialdemocratic female city council for environment protection said that dog dirt is direct, and so the campaign against such kind of phenomenon has to be direct as well.

Even advertisments in radio programs are planned. The speaker should be the famous Austrian comedian Alfred Dorfer.

Critical citizens are not very happy about such a strategy. Althought the sympathy value of dog dirt is usually quite low, the advertising campaign against it is labeled as vulgar and useless.
