Malaysia: Distasteful Bank Advertisement

Rocky's Bru is offended by an advert brought out by a bank in Malaysia. The advert is anouncing a lucky draw and features bank notes being hung to dry on a clothesline. The ad reminds the blogger of floods in Southern Malaysia where people are trying to dry their belongings. The blogger is urging the advertiser to “Be more sensitive to the sufferings of the flood victims. Most of whom don't have wet notes to hang dry.”
