"Potong" saga

Malaysia really needs to loosen up...a lot.

I thought the P1 Wimax advertisements were a hoot. It's the double-entendre that made it so funny...and memorable. It's just the type of brilliance and innovative thinking that we always need.

The response from TM Streamyx was equally brilliant. The "cut, cut, cut" jibes in the TM ads were just as brilliant.

This was, in my opinion, one of the sparkling friendly jibes that corporate rivals gave one another. The exchange over the airwaves was a reminder that Malaysians can be imaginative, innovative and, humorous.

I really don't see what the fuss is all about and, I do strongly recommend that those who took umbrage at the "potong" ad should improve the quality of their lives and attend courses on how to acquire a sense of humour and learn to appreciate creativity and innovative thinking instead of pretending to be guardians of public morals.

Cut it out, I say!

Yes, lah, prudes and idiots all! Lovely ads, and lovely rebuttals from TM - so refreshingly adult :)
