An addendum to my earlier post on advertising:
Mister Donut has a billboard with this image: a young girl who appears to be waxing corpulent, is about to stuff her face with donut holes. She beams in gap-toothed anticipation while her proud father watches. So drop a few pesos on Smidgets — such a tiny-sounding name, surely they can’t contain many calories each — and your little girl too can be happy, pudgy, and missing a tooth or two.
I just can’t picture this ad in the United States. There’s something uniquely Filipino about its humor.
