Foreign Humor

Typically I can appreciate foreign advertising. There always seems to be a satisfying delivery of humor and/or sex appeal that balances right on the edge of going to far. See my blog posting Just Admit You Love Advertising for a classic sample. However, this recent spot from El Cielo for Claro makes me a little uneasy.

Maybe it is because my American brain associates gerbils and little boys with the scandals and horror stories at local hospitals and in tabloid articles. Or maybe it is because I typically only see the cream of the crop when it comes to foreign advertising.

Any which way, this spot was definitely foreign for my tastes. Now, the hamster dance I would have been able to associate with.
