Lol! New Malaysian Airlines ad ask customers what they want to do before they die

Malaysia Airlines has provoked a storm of controversy by asking customers to list the things they would most like to do before they die. The airline, which lost two planes this year in disasters that claimed 537 lives, committed the marketing gaffe when it launched a "My Ultimate Bucket List" campaign on Monday. Continue...



The campaign called on Australian and New Zealand residents to write their own bucket list and enter it into a competition to win flights to Malaysia and iPads.

But with the world still reeling from the twin catastrophes of the MH370 and MH17 crashes, social media users swiftly began mocking the marketing ploy.

It has since been rebranded around "your ultimate to-do list".
"The competition had earlier been approved as it was themed around a common phrase that is used in both countries," the airline said in a statement.
"The airline appreciates and respects the sentiments of the public and in no way did it intend to offend any parties."

Often associated with the terminally ill, a "bucket list" refers to the places one wants to visit or the experiences one wishes to have before they die.

The aftermath of the twin crashes has reportedly crippled the company financially, with plummeting share prices, near-empty flights and the axing of 6000 jobs fuelling speculation that the company is contemplating filing for bankruptcy.

But the airline described bankruptcy talk as "completely false", saying it would "emerge stronger" after privatisation and restructuring.

Awww! There was a misconception. People saw the advert in another light.
But that's why experts are paid for marketing,so they can research very well before coming up with a particular strategy.

Do not be distracted people, ruminate instead on these questions:

1.)Which Country forcibly removed the indigenous inhabitants of Diego Garcia & turned it into a Naval Base? [Search for Diego Garcia on Youtube & watch]

Answer: Uncle Sam

2.)Which Country hijacked the missing Malaysian flight MH370 & is keeping in at Diego Garcia? [Yes just google Diego Garcia]

Answer: Uncle Sam

3.)Which country supported Apartheid in South Africa, and declared Mandela a terrorist?

Answer: Uncle Sam

4.)Which country trained ISIS & funding Boko Haram?

Answer: Uncle Sam

5.)Which country infected Nigerians with Ebola? [Forget all the ruse of Liberian Officials].

6.)Answer: Uncle Sam[C.I.A]

7.)Ask yourself; Y is the Malaysia Flight MH17 crash off the news lately?

Answer: After Russia released satellite & radar pictures. They found out that it was their puppet in Kiev that shot it down, not Russia. [Which was masterminded by the C.I.A from the onset]

8.)Which Country is working assiduously for Nigeria's disintegration?

Answer: Your guess is as good as mine.

My friends - The bottom line is; Russia isn't our enemy just as America isn't our friend!
