Ramadan TV Ads – Controversial and “Racist” TV Ad
If you’ve been reading my post, you’ll notice that I’ve posted several Ramadhan food reviews lately. In all these reviews (except one), I did my entries bilingual in respect of my Malay readers. Today, I went for another Ramadhan food review. It was different this time around as unlike those Ramadhan food reviews in the past weeks, this time around the Muslims are already fasting. It was okay when I went around taking snapshots of the food but it got weird as we began to sample the dishes while they are still fasting. I resorted to not eat until the Muslims break their fast, then only do I feel comfortable going around the buffet line for food.
We had a very lovely dinner tonight; the ambiance was great, the presentation was marvelous and location was superb! We had a great time chatting away even after we finished dinner. Then I got home and received this YouTube video in my email.
Update: DANG! They removed the video AGAIN!
As I was watching that video, it hit me hard when I was at point 1.00 onwards. Why? Because I was dressed that way tonight. I was dressed in this…
There, that was exactly what I wore tonight to the Ramadhan review. Inappropriate? It was a dinner at a resort by the pool side. I did not think much about wearing the above until I saw that video. What was the Ad trying to say?
“DO NOT WEAR TIGHT AND REVEALING CLOTHES”?
Gosh, if you look at the very beginning of the Ad at point 0.01, there was this lady wearing sleeveless but nothing is being said about that and us wearing this is considered tight and revealing? There was not even a hint of cleavage, just lots of arms and this is offensive?
I don’t know about you but I don’t see any Ad telling people not to eat beef in front of a certain race or anything close to that so why this? Why?!
Here are the movie stills in case the YouTube video got removed again..
Ad #1 DO NOT BE LOUD OR OBNOXIOUS
Ad #2 DO NOT BE GREEDY AND EAT IN PUBLIC
Ad #3 DO NOT WEAR TIGHT AND REVEALING CLOTHES
I sincerely think for what is worth, he should be covering HIS eyes instead of his daughter’s! -_-
Well, you are suppose to be wearing this….
What about the lady announcer then? Why is she wearing figure hugging outfit?
And that lady? What is she wearing?
