in bad taste

Today in the paper edition of the New York Times: countless ads by big fashion brands, which think they are being very tasteful by putting the words "in memoriam", "in remembrance" and whatever variations thereof, like: In Memoriam, Gucci.
I think this is in terrible taste. What do Gucci or Prada or any of those people have to do with 9/11?
It is obvious that it is another way to advertise the brand. Unless you think they are truly mourning five years later. And fashion could shut the fuck up for one miserable day a year, no? Is that too much to ask?
