Pick a random country and there will be TV commercials employing humor and sex to sell food. Here's a few of the best from Thailand in what I hope to be an ongoing series of similar posts (YouTube search, don't fail me now!)
5. Instant Noodles
Sexy girls in a hot tub as a visual metaphor for noodles. Need I say more?
4. Green Tea
Simultaneous boob lift and liposuction…is there anything green tea can't do?
This one's a series of many where the stomach has a mind (and mouth) of its own, sort of like Kuato in Total Recall.
2. Frozen Dinner
This commercial is comforting because it shows that even single Thai men who can't cook also have to resort to frozen meals just like men every where else.
Don't you hate it when you're finally reincarnated into human form only to get flattened by a panda. Wait. What?
Edwin Goei was born on the island of Java, grew up in La Habra, studied in Irvine, and eats everywhere. Before becoming an award-winning restaurant critic for OC Weekly in 2007, he went by the alias “elmomonster” on his blog Monster Munching, in which he once wrote a whole review in haiku.
