French Lottery commercial pokes fun at JFK assassination

Here’s a new ad for the French Lottery titled “Like To Gamble?” that shows two Dallas police officers placing a wager that results in the shooting death of John F. Kennedy in 1963.

I have to admit, I found this commercial to be pretty funny. I know there’s going to be a ton of controversy surrounding it considering it makes light of a tragic event in American history, but I still laughed because the execution…erm, delivery…was pretty perfect. What do you think…is this funny, or does it cross the line?
