So much controversy has been buzzing around with Malaysia claiming Indonesian heritage in their commercial ad for Visit Malaysia. This brings me the curiousity to actually see whether our own commercial ad walk the talk. Therefore I render up some youtube clip for you to compare:
Okay so here’s a review for the Visit Indonesia 2008 clip that I think is a hypocrisy with all that claiming of Malaysia stealing other people culture:
0:25 : The rubber boat wind surfing. Wind surfing is originally founded from western culture.
0:29 : Dad & Kid with surf board as background. I believe that’s also a western culture.
0:37 : DJ? Isn’t that from the United States?
0:39 : Jazz, saxophone, and guitar. I’m sorry but those aren’t musical instruments from Indonesia.
0:50 : Woman in white posing in a yoga fashion. Isn’t yoga from India? If I’m wrong, I’m sure it’s not from Indonesia either.
So, what do you have to say guys? Instead of blaming Malaysia that they are stealing our culture, aren’t we being hypocrite by depicting all those foreign culture in our commercial ads? It seems that the western isn’t saying that Indonesia is claiming their heritage just like we do.
