Revolting Sells

Filed under: Merchandise — scotsabroad @ 5:37 pm

The date January 25th and the Egyptian colours are being displayed everywhere. Stickers that look like actual car number plates are proudly stuck on vehicles, flags of all sizes fly from homes, bicycles, micro-buses and army tanks. The milk bottle in our fridge displays national unity as does our local supermarket’s carrier bags. Red, white and black stripes are painted on lamposts and tree trunks.

My favourite We Love Egypt promotion at the moment is from the toiletries company Fa. They proudly include a free revolutionary mug (displaying flag and significant date) in a twin pack of deodorant. Also the rather wonderful slogan is written on the mug, We Stand Together. His and hers scent option.

So, no excuses while queuing at the polling centre or when the next demonstration happens and you get all hot and sweaty. Genius.
