Have you ever had one of those moments when you’re just that desperate for a laugh? Well, today’s your lucky day because I have here a commercial from Bangladesh promoting local bike maker Pegasus. The commercial is admittedly a few months old and I’ve seen it more times than I can care to count. But really, every time I watch it is another reason for me to laugh. It never gets old!
The Bollywood-style action sequence is very Matrix-like, except that our protagonist here appears to be more imposing than Neo. He rides his Pegasus like a steely stallion as he attempts to save a young girl from the clutches of her kidnappers, who by the way, found it convenient to do the “exchange in well-lit parking lot with presumably a lot of CCTV cameras. Way to go there, sir!
But the action heats up when our hero emerges, throws his helmet on one of the baddies, and proceeds to engage in a shootout with the rest of the kidnapper’s goons.
Unfortunately, the collective artillery of said goons was no match for the hero’s Liam Neeson-style histrionics. He ends up killing off the baddies one by one before putting a bullet on the main antagonist and driving off, young girl in hand, as the background is engulfed by flames.
Like I said, the ad is so corny and/or cheesy that it actually becomes funny. Check it out and have a good laugh yourselves.
