Bad taste?

This ad is for a product called d_skin that snaps on media disks (CDs, games, etc.) to protect the disk surface. The company used an atomic wasteland in the ad to make their point, but it's probably just a touched up stock photo since it features a fairly well known landmark in the background:


The Hiroshima A-bomb Dome

Now I'm not knocking the ad too hard, whoever made the thing was probably being lazy and just found a photo of this landmark easy to slap in there. I'm not against this kind of bad taste per se, but it seems like something one would like to avoid when selling a product.
