Absolutely hilarious. I have always wondered why people use foreigner photos in Gym/real estate ads. Its like - "guys get into ganshyam das gym and you can find Pamela Anderson or Sylvestor stallone "!!
Infact these days you could find cute little Chinese kid photos in preschool ads

Henceforth I won't say that the sales representative of any auto company is misinformed/not trained.

Todays news in the "The Hindu" news paper. I never expected such goof-up in this paper.

I remember seeing a car ad (skoda?) in which they mentioned ABS (Anti braking system) as their feature. Comparing to that this news report is nothing!

Edit: I found the ad!

On my recent trip to Arunachal Pradesh happened to spend a day at Yatri Nivas, Konark. This was the menu card at the restaurant.

Found some new items on menu - didn't dare to try (was scared - with the bills Chains might be given)

Starts well enough and then goes down the drain.

Seriously I mean such banners / boards remain that way without anyone correcting them. Either its carelessness or clever marketing.

Was browsing through Ali Express and found this hilarious feedback. What did she mean by "I ordered her husband..."

Spotted this a while back when browsing through Dubizzle.

A BMW ML 320. That too in good condition.

It was December 26th, the day after Christmas. I was browsing Facebook feeds on my phone and I see this:

This evening saw a Dzire Taxi somewhere near Whitefield Honda on the ITPL Road - what caught my attention first was an after market sharkfin antenna, like the ones on the Honda City. Then, I noticed a large sticker covering almost the entire rear bumper that read "Shathrugala Aasheervadha" which means "Blessing of enemies" Talk about ways to ward off evils and protect from bad omens!
Was driving, so no picture.
