Instant noodle brand Pop Mie has launched a new ad touting its preferred choice status.
The story begins in India where street vendors are desperate to sell their goods to an Indonesian tourist. The ad then abruptly shifts to a college dorm where a student is caught munching on Pop Mie late at night.
Ad Nut is quite disappointed to see such stereotyping and would like to point out that tourists are not —as the press release states “accosted” in markets in India.
But apparently that was the director’s vision:
“It’s great to work with agency and clients who understand and appreciate my vision for the film,” says Simon Phang, the film’s director. “I was really happy with the result and as always thoroughly enjoy the experience.”
