I was watching tv, and there was this advertisement about a loan scheme form a bank, which I will not mention the name.
Basically, the ad revolves around three women having a conversation about how the loan works. Of course, those three women are a Malay, and Indian, and a Chinese.
Seriously! Stop it!
Why must "happy-people" commercials in our country involves boldly highlighting the three major races we have here?? We all know that already. No need to highlight it everywhere possible!
1Malaysia is about dissolving those lines, idiots!
No need to feel super-sensitive about everything!
No need to try too hard to scream : "WE'RE NOT RACIST AT ALL! EQUALITY IN EVERYTHING INCLUDING ADS!"
No need to subliminalize it in detergent commercials, damnit!
It's not like a bunch of Malays will get upset if they weren't represented by a Malay guy in an electrical appliances ad! Not like we'll forget that we have Chinese here, if there was no Chinese actors/actresses in those ads!
You want equality? Why not equalize quotas?
I remember there was a Raya ad last year. Three kids selling kuihs. Again, same thing there. But that was kind of okay, as it was a festival commercial, and there were sequels to the Raya ad during Deepavali or CNY, I can't remember. So that was nice.
I guess those who came up with these ads ideas are idiots, after all.
I mean, look at the quality of the ads, and you'll be able to tell.
The actors/actresses are often loom very unwilling. It's like they're forced to say the lines, they're forced to smile and show their teeth, they're forced to interact with each other.
They'll laugh for a stupid lame joke at the end of the commercials. Sometimes, there was no joke at all, but they laughed anyway, which doesn't make sense... hahahahahahha!!
Makeup skills are normally very lame. Either they just simply put on themselves, or there was no makeup at all.
Seriously, idiots. No need to extra-think about racism when doing detergent/electrical appliances/bank loans ad. Just send the damn message in your 30 second space!
