The Point Being?

Some of you may have seen the following ad, which featured prominently in the pages of The Daily Times' Sunday magazine and the Express Tribune Magazine today...




It sort of reminded me of this by-now famous photograph that did the rounds a couple of years ago...



In both cases, I have only one comment to make: 'Why?'

Finally we can help ourselves realize that Saudi's are not our friends and they have a skewed ideology of Islam, which they are trying to sell to the world and in particular to us.

So what's the deal here with the champagne? Surely its not actual champagne, just some crap? Or is it actual champagne, in which case how can it be saudi?


I'm confused :S

The comparison doesn't even make sense :)

Stop taking everything so seriously and living in a parallel universe where you want to find a pseudo-intellectual reason for everything.

The purpose of this is to put your champagne in this bottle and get people used to having Hilal champagne then you secretly switch to real good stuff and no one figures out you are getting drunk all the time on the good stuff man.

is Saudi even aware that Al-Hilal Industries Pk have named a supposed 'champagne 'drink after them?
I think not. Though I'd love to see what happens when they find out.

the scene of hijabis being pictured by a guy is reenacted in a scene of "3 idiots". I was surprised to see it as well.
