Friends and foes, witness the true firepower
of the Liberation Army Against Freedom
. We have been amassing a fearsome arsenal
, and soon the world will tremble at the Mother of All (Fireworks) Rockets
Some people have been offended
by this series of Dutch fireworks safety adverts, such as Saad Saraf, the chief executive of multicultural marketing specialists Media Reach Advertising:
"What is the campaign hoping to achieve by depicting a negative stereotype of the Muslim community in a fireworks advert? ... Are the producers aware that the actors in the advert are speaking in an Iraqi accent; with the current state of affairs in Iraq and the loss of lives as a result of suicide bombing, I question, what were the creatives thinking?," said Saraf.
On the other hand, Inayat Bunglawala, the assistant secretary general of the Muslim Council of Britain, thought they were fine:
"I thought they were very humorous public safety films ... Obviously there will always be some who find it to be in bad taste, but I thought it was done light-heartedly and funny and with clear educational value."
