comfy chair advert is unethical

i dont get it. i dont get our advertisement nowadays. some are just plain stupid. but most of it nowadays just dont make any logic sense, and out right irritating. i guess the part on dont make any logic sense is a gimmick that would make you watch it over and over again for you to figure out what it is. by the time you figure it out, you realised you are the only idiot that watched the tv ad 999 times.

what kind of ad was i reffering to ? top of my head, is those fragrance ad. 1 you see one dude ran from one place to another, then you got this skinny looking chick acting crazy in the street then you have another dude skipping rocks as the ocean wave crashes against the rock.

and arent you bored already with all this mawi ad, honestly i havent seen him sang before and i cant see why ppl get crazy over him.then you get all this credit card winning contest, charged and win great prizes, it look so easy. i've been using credit card for so long now and i havent won a single thing before in my life.

radio ad are equally irritating especially that one on depositing rm500 into a specific bank a/c and that bugger won a plasma tv. so he deposit another rm5,000 and he won 10 plasma tv. go so lucky wan meh ? tiu !

since we are in the topic of advert, how come nowadays all advert done by cham peng ppl oledi ? i remember many years ago they said cham peng cannot do advert. i dont remember that policy was cancelled, whew got fair, where all the ah beng went ?

and since we are talking about cham peng, i cant stand shazmin of mix fm breakfazt show. i know she is not cham peng, but doesnt she reminds you of 1 janet ambrose back in those radio 4 station. she was this bitch that just yack and yack and yack none stop. that is what shazmin is, she yack and yack on topics ppl are not familiar with, ask question on things nobody knows, we know she grew up in the ah moh land and then marry ah moh man, but no need to act like that wan mah. you see richard, the original cina-pek. all original. and somemore she is all for non-pirated goods, that makes her my no. 1 public enemy. i remembered she said something like if you are wearing pirated stuff, you should feel bad or something like that lah. beh tahan her. i remember once when she wasnt around and they pit richard and ika together, it was fantastic. everybody click.

which brings me back to why i wrote this. that current advert by ogawa and osim on their comfy chair, where the story went like my father bought me a ratan chair then a pc chair, now i buy my parents a osim/ogawa chair. so if my parents were to buy me a plastic paddle car then it is going to be my solemn duty to get them a merz 320 lah ? where got logic right ? personally i think the advert is unethical. comparing money and love and trying to make you feel guilty. i know some parents are like that, they expect their children to repay them back somehow. when i grow old oneday, i wont want anything from my kids, i just want them to be whatever they want whether it makes money or not, as long as they are happy.

Talking about stupid advert. how about the Ogawa chair one where the chinese girl marry a malay guy and her father no happy with her, till never attend her wedding or see her first born baby. Later when she buy him the Ogawa chair he forgive her.. Wah lieu eh... Wonder if Saddam can buy the Ogawa chair to Bush so he can forgive all his killings in Iraq ?

since ur on the topic of ads... remember the HSBC ad where the guy buys for his wife/gf the RM800(I think) baju kebaya or baju kurung or wat?? Tht ad oso is fucked up cos it trying to show all of us that money buys happiness.. Yes it does and many ppl wont agree but still i dont think they shud send such messages in their ads.

i havent seen the ogawa ads (i rarely watch tv) but the ad "no4" was talkin abt.. abit the stupid rite? wonder if they got ban the ad anot after that for showing malay guy and chinese girl.. knowing malaysia la.

no.4, i dont think i have seen that advert before, but yes you are right todays advert is fucking with our mentality. they we stupid ah ? just like our information minister.
right on shan, nearly forgotten abt that dick-head advert, i mean the women had better sense to buy something more affordable, but the guy nooooooooo. also the other one on the kid buying the football jersey. i think it is sending the wrong message out. but i think shazmin would agree with the advert !
angel, so u also want to kahwin ah moh ? longer and bigger right ? can choke on it also. hahaha.
but i think shazmin ah moh quite old lah, some him at richard's wedding.

maybe they actually made the ads with tht intent so most people will start talking abt it.. cud be their tactic...

cos tht's wat the advertisers want.. YOUR attention to THEIR advert. i guess ogawa and hsbc if thts the case la..

woah serius stuffs here. tell you what, lets us suggest that we boycott the products of tasteless/unethical advertisements!

but i really miss those coca cola, dunhill and salem advertisements. especially the ciggies advert. i grew up thinking the salem high country advert was for going on some holidays on the alps and the dunhill advert was for going to london, paris, new york.

the deleted comment was a spam comment, seem to get a lot of this lately.
i want to agree with you shan but i dont think our local advertisers are so far advanced as to think of the indirect adverse affect of their advert on us. i rather think they are like our mp, they just didnt think it through enough.
yoda, nice to finally see you again, linux working with windows today i guess.
pointless boycotting these products, are dont think there is much of a demographic to support their products anyway, but i could be wrong.
yes ciggie advert were great, but i rather liked all those foreign advert we receive on our mail daily, which are funny and downright entertaintning. even thailand and singapore advert are more interesting than ours. like i aid before our local ads are just fucking with our mentality, since we all have 3rd world mentality for whatever that means proudly proclaimed by our information minister.

not linux with windows but rather linux-unix-windows all campur together to fuck up the compatibility of the pc's and acess of the network which makes me lazy to comment on your blog. There was nothing wrong with the net connection. just that your topics was too boring for me to comment.

and who cares about demographics? the next time you feel like getting an Ogawa chair, remember the advert and look for other brands instead. Piss off with HSBC? cut the CC and send it back to them. Not like we want to make it as a movement or anything. If i personally feels that the advert is offending to me, i would not buy the products. thats all.

fact is our local ads suck... foreign ads of cos are better cos they are allowed more levy then the govt allows here... fucky situation leading to fucky ads!
