I have a project at uni I've gotta get started, but I'm struggling for ideas.

I have to make a slide show of about 24 frames, advertising a product that cannot be sold. I.e Asbestos, war, hitler, whale meat etc. (those are the ones the lecturer sampled us with)

Any help pit?

Watch "The Pitch" segment from the show "The Gruen Transfer", it's exactly what you're after (and may have inspired your lecturer, as i think the show did whale meat). On one episode they had to convince people to invade New Zealand (ok, not quite unsellable) and one guy had the idea of saying "if we invade, there's a public holiday in it for you". so i guess use persauasion to sell the unsellable?

Hitler wouldn't be that hard, actually. Bring up the facts that he was a brilliant leader, great military strategist, and while he did kill Jews, he was smart enough to be able to hide it from all of the other countries for several years, etc.

And throw in a slide about Israel declaring war on Germany before the holocaust. That'll make your teacher shit.

Hitler, or some other leader wouldn't be that hard.
Maybe some other leader, such as Ghangus Khan (sp?) from centuries ago.

That would be interesting, you could sell a bonus edition, with added countries conquered etc.

here's some ancient wisdom that can help:

if a man has a whole pile of s*hit to sell, he better tie a big red ribbon around it.

Maybe I am wrong here, but I thought he was asking for ways to sell the 'product', not ideas for the unsellable item itself... I could be wrong though.
