6/5/2003: Pakistani Muslims hate ads



It's Pakistani Muslims, some of the hardest hardline Muslims in the world, trying to tear down roadside advertising that they consider to be obscene.

story



That Guy  Thursday Jun 5 01:17 PM

Yea, I thought that picture looked a little obscene. You can almost see her gums. And they're probably smiling because neither of them is wearing pants.



Yharr  Thursday Jun 5 03:06 PM

Once in Argentina I saw a sign in spanish that said "No Arrojar Basura," which means "Do not dump trash." At the base of the sign was a pile of the most disgusting moldy garbage that several people had obviously contributed to on a daily basis THAT REACHED ALL THE WAY TO THE METAL SIGN AT THE TOP!

That would be almost as good an IOTD as this one.

Its obscene because it can be. I love the way she's holding that bottle. Its so BAD!



novice day off  Thursday Jun 5 03:21 PM

Maybe it's a combo of the woman and the way she's holding that bottle.
I've done shore leave in Dubai and kuwait where even storebought movies have blurred bubbles over the racy bits and forget about anything remotely stimulating ( for my jaded tastes) on the tele.
After a while I got to the point where the sight of bare midriff on punjab Mtv was cause for ...er...celebration. I was forced to re-ignite my imagination.
Being as the guys above have probably never had anything but their imagination the ads must seem extremely provocotive which can be a real problem when you only wear light cotton whatevers and no undie grundies.

Maybe they just don't like Pepsi

I can understand that.



xoxoxoBruce  Thursday Jun 5 04:43 PM

Bunch of Coke suckers.



chrisinhouston  Thursday Jun 5 04:46 PM

I like the ladder, looks home made and about ready to fall. Remember the important thing is to be safe.



Odd_Bloke  Thursday Jun 5 05:14 PM

Those ladders are very secure, made form bamboo as thick as your arm (unless you are particular muscled or weedy) and generally lashed together well. Trust me on this, I've climbed one of them while I was living there.



lhand  Thursday Jun 5 05:16 PM

That's obscene for sure

It's obscene--it's Pepsi and every one knows Coke is better. Unless you can get an RC, of course.

Though Coke is not sold in Pakistan at all. It's Pepsi or nothing (barring Fanta which is basically pure sugar and colourings).


warch  Thursday Jun 5 06:07 PM

How dare that beautiful woman smile, show teeth, hair, nose, ears, neck, arms...she proves herself even less than the traditional .5 human worth of the male, tricked, seduced, and dishonored by her and her brazen Pepsi. Grrrrrrrrr. She is so ungrateful.



warch  Thursday Jun 5 06:08 PM

Oh yeah, and she's out of the house without permission.



Undertoad  Thursday Jun 5 07:19 PM

And enjoying life.

Recent story had a Florida muslim woman not wanting to remove her headgear for her license photo. Some wag took a look at how the Islamic countries would treat such a matter. If the more liberal ones, they remove the veil for the photo. In the less liberal ones, females are not permitted to drive at all.

Welcome to Middle Eastern Religious Images week on the Cellar Image of the Day.



one earth  Friday Jun 6 10:47 AM

Pepsi in Iraq? There are no soft drinks in Baghdad! Even now the people in the street are cheering for goat's milk. The American beverage makers are committing suicide on the borders of Iraq even now. I am telling you the truth. Coca Cola and RC are American imperialist liquids and will die like the dogs in the street that they are. Fanta will tremble before us as we beat them with our shoes.



warch  Friday Jun 6 11:14 AM

Well geeze, Fanta...that should be acceptable, cause its no social lubricant.

Wishful thinking shoeless heathen. You will be washed from the face of the earth by a flood of colas of mass destruction.:p


jaguar  Monday Jun 9 03:17 AM

Fanta and lubricant are two words that should never be in the same sentence. Irrispective of context.

As a rule i have no problem with people pulling down ads (Australia has a strong adbusting community and had THE best Reclaim The Streets party the world has ever seen) but i'm gonna laugh if the ad underneath is worse.



modernhamlet  Monday Jun 9 12:55 PM

is that...

I could be mistaken, but isnt the guy on the far right covered in blood? Eww.
