A bit daft today. Dont fully get the joke. Care to elaborate?

Jin Woo i think is a korean name so when the parent says "konichiwa" (japanese) and "watchaaaa!" (<- like in kungfu movies) they are making gross generalisations of the asian person, and getting it wrong at that. however, the asian guy & the young lady wasn't offended until they called the helio just a "normal" phone.

a low level joke today dith, no quality ones im afraid ...

pycno
hehehe, what do you mean agaknya ... if you mean siti nurhaliza - she's sadly taken ;(

(i'm only pretending to be siti's fan because mama sarah hates siti to an unbelievable level, seeing MS' reactions when i say "siti" is funny. i don't really like siti at all 2b honest - both the singer & her songs)

I used to think Siti was ok until I saw the wedding announcement on TV yesterday!! That pulled the plug!!! KA BOOM!

mynn said...

dith,
why? what was so bad about the announcement?
btw dith, how's the family? best cuti2 & buat apa lately?

what is this 'HELIO'? A new gadget? Phone + internet browser + organiser?
It does look sleek.

mynn said...

despite what they market it as, i think it's a phone.

In other words it is okay to make stupid racist generalisation jokes but to call 'it' a phone was way too much for the girl... it even has my space Mumu! .... hehehe.. just like in SG Atlantis.. DR McKay mentions that the operating system aboard the hive ship was a mess... then quips "good thing I still remember DOS"... a joke that was totally loss on his friends... which then made McKay say, "believe me, that was hilarious"..

mynn said...

exactly!!! i thought i was the only one who thought the joke is very racist. and they scoff at the black-white psp jokes.

orangkilang said...

Yeah.. talk about over analysing a 30 second comercial... hehehehe... the most stupid advert in msia nowadays is the Osim advert....
