I find these deeply alien, creepy and disturbing.

I love the behind-the-panda ears POV shot before he starts smashing stuff.

It's like, oh no you didn't!

I love the half turn to the nurse after he pulls out the IV.

Or any type of bear really. Anyone know what country these are from?
posted by delmoi at 7:06 PM on September 21, 2010


I'm pretty sure they're Iranian.

Yeah, I want to know where these are from. So odd. Also: is it good cheese?

No, Egyptian.

Just when I'm getting discouraged about the tone of political discourse in this country, and I'm feeling overwhelmed with all the stuff I have to do at work, and just kind of wondering what is the point of everything, along comes something like this to remind me that yes, indeed, the world is a wonderful place.

That Panda needs to take an emergency Xanax, and chill the fuck out.

Meh. I was expecting people to get mauled by the panda, a la PvP comic strip.

they just got better and better... thanks...

but, someone tell me what that computer was in the first clip.. looked like an old Mac, but it had two drive bays...

If you would have told me when I woke up this morning that I would see a series of hilarious Egyptian commercials involving a panda suit and cheese, I don't think I would have believed you.

Why say no when yes feels so right?

My boyfriend's nickname is panda. These commercials are weird for me.

I like a product that isn't afraid to say, "Buy our crap or we will fuck your shit up."

Still, funnier than I expected.

It's a Macintosh SE.

I love this.

The key here is never to be put in a situation where you can refuse Panda. I think it's the act that summons him.

...Then again, it was pretty unprovoked that last time. Who knows. That panda comes from Circumstances, man.

Is that the same agency that does Microsoft ads?

I'd take my chances with the panda bear and get a better brand. Oddly, there's no "p" sound in Arabic so the Arabic lettering on the package is actually pronounced "banda".

I've never tasted panda milk, let alone other panda dairy products.

Grizzly, man.

Saw this on Laughing Squid and thought, that last quick shot of the panda adjusting the angle of the cheese box relative to the POV is chillingly brilliant.

Appropriately, this made me hungry for cheese.

Panda cheese.

In Egypt, cheese comes in juice boxes!

The thing I really love about these is that they show a completely different view of Egypt than what we usually get in the US. All we ever typically see of Egypt is divided between terrorism/Islamic militancy on one side and archaeology on the other side. We never get to see the deadpan wacky side of Egypt that's shown in these commercials.

World peace and harmony through cheese, I always say....

(Ummm....I mean....uhh..Panda Cheese. Yeah!! Lots and lots of Panda cheese...err...ha...)

What's interesting is I sent this to an Egyptian friend and she told me this is very much political commentary

In what way? Did she provide any background?

Somebody posted a link to these old Wilkins Coffee commercials, featuring an early Kermit the Frog.
