sing a happy song

Postby calugaruvaxile » Mon, 17 Aug 2015 9:03 am

watching the whorish-looking girls singing this song which seems to be kpop crossbred with north korean propaganda marches just to explain the senior citizens package is ... hmmmm ... convincing me that beavis and butthead have a quite large family!

Since it is targeted towards the local older folks, this kind of campaigns work ... mingling with the older folks will clearly show that the love this kind of garish skits.

Now .. if the audience is foreigners .. no comments

I doubt the producers wanted foreigners to give their comments :D No offense ;)

She's a getai performer. I don't know her. Getai shows are staged during the month of Hungry Ghost and popular free entertainment in the old days. Well-received by the elderly folks but not sure about their appeal for the younger generation.

The Pioneer Cheer campaign. Presumably a government department/initiative!?

p.s. I think if there are such condescending ads targeted at OAPs when I retire I'm gonna put a chair through the TV... hehehehehehe [B&B snigger]

They are anything but whorish, more like little girls getting ready to grow up in a few years still embracing their naivete and innocence

shiny red shoes with spiked heels ... checked
short skirts ... checked
dresses revealing the body "features" ... checked
overdose of makeup (including heavy red lipstick) ... checked

yeah, they look like the innocent girls from the 4 floors of little girls waiting to grow up (something)

Red is definitely a signifier of sexual maturity, especially in a shade of baboon butt red

Couple of them look like they've been around the block a couple of times already.

Not sure if your intention is to piss off the natives .. but you are doing a great job so far .. :)

As for 'opinions' the local feed back has been positive, though some asked for more dialect versions - and those who gave feedback are the PGs, at whom the campaign is targeted at ..

On that score, I would say it is a success !

I don't see it whorish neither. It's a pure kitsch essence and with their legs work similar to what can be seen every day on the streets it's actually anti-sexual.

Damn! You're older than I thoughT! Older'n me apparently. If it were anti-sexual why use cute nubile youngish ladies with reasonably nice bodies, etc. rather than 40~50ish ah peks.

I know who it is targeted at, but what is it for?
Mebbe I'm getting old but I lost track somewhere along the way amongst all the dancing girls 8-) Maybe there should be another version for pre-OAPs, but with less clothing and more lipstick on.

p.s. Everyone in Sg is a foreigner, just on a relative scale. (Unless you're of Sundanese heritage of course).
