A new generation of advertising is hitting cinema screens, poster boards and television. It is cynical and nihilistic, and directed at "generation X", the key 18-to-29-year-old consumers who currently spend nearly £2 billion a year.

Jane Robins looks at how different companies are approaching this market and asks whether it is necessary for advertisers to use images of death and violence.
