Punctuation employed to pause aging process.

(click ads) Well at least Kaya skin clinics of India didn't go with the usual close-up shots of beautiful fake-users of their dubious products gently caressing their shiny photo-retouched baby butt faces. But I'm thinking these grammatical teasers might leave some potential customers scratching their heads. Campaign by Y&R Dubai, via Ad Blog Arabia. Previous skin care ads: (nsfw) Fake tits used to sell bullshit skin firming cream. Asian woman's secret to milky white skin—she swallows. Chinese skin whitener illegally uses Michael Jackson in ad.

I might have MISREAD it BUT I have a feeling the campaign was inspired by:

Comma comma comma comma Chameleon,
Where'd it go? Where'd it go?

MISHEARD Lyrics of:
Karma Karma Karma Karma Chameleon,
You come and go, You come and go

Karma Chameleon
Boy George, Culture Club, 1984

While we're on the subject of 'skin clinics - India':

Skin-whitening adverts ignite race row in India

The actors are beautiful, the sets are stylish and the message could not be clearer – the woman with the paler skin gets the man.

In recent weeks, Indians have been treated to an eye-catching television advert "mini-series" featuring three of Bollywood's hottest talents in a moody love-triangle. All in the name of skin-whitening cream.

The whitening market in India is worth millions of pounds, with men as well as women routinely buying bleaching lotions in an effort to "improve" their complexion.

Too smart for its own good, methinks.
