Pakistanis Are Actually Triggered By This Soap Company's Unfortunate Ad Placement

By Ather Ahmed | 10 Nov, 2017

This is a hilariously unfortunate ad, tbh

 

When you’re in the world of advertising a lot is at stake so you have to be really careful. It is crucial that the audience understands the message you’re trying to send and subsequently buys the product. It’s still cool if the audience doesn’t truly get what your trying to say and are just baffled. I mean those who buy your product would keep on buying it. But what if the brand inadvertently¬†sends a message which has well negative¬†connotations.

 

Well, Lifebuoy, a famous soap brand in Pakistan, ended up being at the receiving end of a hilariously awkward ad placement

It was so unfortunate that people actually decided to get offended by the not-really-offensive ad.

Now if you don’t see anything wrong with this I suggest that you go watch¬†Pogo¬†for the next 24 hours and come back.

Someone tried to give the company the benefit of the doubt and make sense of it but ultimately reached the same conclusion

This one person came up with a suggestion of his own

I agree a normal person wouldn’t expect people to buy his stuff after giving them¬†lanat

Yeah. at this point Lifebuoy should really consider taking the John Cena route

It would really be beneficial if they used Mr. Cena’s invisible hand on their ad, for a while.

 

In case you were wondering, this is what Lifebuoy actually was using their “offensive” hand gesture for:

We live in a perpetually triggered world where everyone has to walk on egg shells. Guess, Lifebuoy just got caught in an unfortunate situation.
