In All Fairness

The Fairness Cream I mentioned earlier...   here's the ad:


And to reinforce that this  is NOT just some side-line, rarely used product, this was a 1/2 page ad, on the front page of the newspaper.  And, at work, we had a "fun at work" activity, in which we were divided into teams of 4 or 5, and had to use ads from the paper to sell a product, with a celebrity endorsement, and act out an ad for the activity, that a panel of judges would determine the winner.  One of the 5 teams chose "Fairness Cream".

I STILL don't get it.

  2. well, if you look at the history of India... you can see why "fair" (read white) would be the preferred colour. When I was a kid, my mum would yell at me to come in from outside because I would "get too dark". umm.. yeah, i was a rebel even then. ;)
