A Rather Weighty Issue.


Click on this..go on! Posted by Hello

Did you see that?
Hmm..where do i begin..

*mahi thoughtfully contemplates dissing this ad in a manner that will not get her sued*

Screw it.

This ad is the most fucked up thing i have ever seen in the mass media.
I'm not going to talk about the grammar (or lack thereof) coz if i started on that, then..WELL..this would be a very long post..and im not the nitpicking sort.

Let's talk about the political correct-ness of this ad.
"Redeem Million Dollars Diamond from Lard"

LARD?!?
Isnt that the stuff PIGS have??
What is wrong with the people who make such ads??Whats wrong with a (sorta) reputable paper like 'TODAY' that actually PRINTS THIS STUFF?

Oh oh there was this other ad on TV..A before and After picture..
The girl in the After picture says - "Before, i weighed 75kgs..my boyfriend said i looked like a bouncer, now he says i look beautiful!"

Honey, if your boyfriend calls you a bouncer, you don't go and lose weight..you go and kick his sorry superficial ass. You'll probably be bigger than him anyway.

Look, I'm all for people wanting to lose weight and all that..hell i wouldnt mind losing a few kilos myself..BUT what sort of a warped message are ads like these sending out to people who, GOD FORBID, can't fit into a size 2 outfit.
LARD?!!?!?!
So...if you're fat..you're a pig. No two ways about it.

Ya hear that, fat people?? If you're fat, you should go sit yourself down on scales(dont forget to wear that blue bikini..it SO brings out the colour of your eyes), lollipop in hand...oh and dont forget to look orgasmically happy that you're being publicly humiliated.


Un-lard-ing yourself at this centre will set you back $800.
Do yourself a favour..Go buy yourself a diamond thats worth $800..be happy with the way you are...and walk away with your dignity intact.

That's priceless.

I'm Fat well according to my doctor so I guess I'm fat. Mind you, my doctor called me obese, I rather be called fat.
Ads like this don't bother me because I am happy with what I look like. I am trying to loose weight and have lost quite a but i'm not killing myself or worrying about it.
Have a nice day

walker - its great that you're comfortable with who you are..sadly there are very few pple like you around...it just completely pisses me off when ads like these r up coz they do nothing but prey on the insecurities of pple..newspapers need to rethink putting up shit like this.

"Customers who succeed in losing 7kg will have the opportunity to win a piece of valuable diamond!"

LOL. It's just a crap ad, probably done by a bunch of old MCPs (male Chauvinist Pigs) sitting in an air-conditioned boardroom.

i dont see what the big deal is?
We live in a world where we're constantly bombarded by media preying on the insecurities of others. Look at any magazine, billboard, pop video, or even a friends episode. You think if Rachael was FAT, those guys would go for her? its sad, but its true. This ad just is a bit more Blunt about it - true singaporean style.

So what. I think a little motivation like a diamond isnt too bad...for doing something healthy. i would be MORE worried about why they want your LARD? there isnt a restaraunt next door to this, is there? ;)

PS I wonder how much that model got paid.

well don't know about singapore, but here in italy gorls in their late twenties MUST have no hips, no thighs and a massive "chest"..well that shall cost you such an amount all through your life (gym + PT, nutritionist, dietician, liposuction, breast implant, endermologie, diet bars or whatever those fowl things are called..) that you'd feel way better in buying a nice, actually no, a MASSIVE diamond for yourself, coz it does make a girl feel pretty good and start enjoying life, if you enjoy life your weight will naturally readjust to what it should be: if you are big-boned you will harmoniously be so, if you are a stick with cellulite.. well, maybe you'll feel happy and motivated and will finally start to exercise!

jay - its beyond crap..ive seen so many horrible ads but this one takes the cake..(make that a low fat,low carb, low everything cake)

ds - its not about the weight u lose mate...its about the PRINCIPLE..i mean no amount of weight u lose is ever worth the humiliation..('tho she does look crazy happy in the ad..so who knows?)
you know..what if they're pulling a 'fight club' on us..u know..selling us back our asses in the form of soap?

waltzing matilda - sigh..its same here..its all about looking as flat as an airport runway..
ure right! its all about just being COMFORTABLE with who u are.
