Gordon Goldman came up with the idea for the commercial when a homeless girl tried to sell him flowers. “Many of our products and especially our commercials don’t reach out to kids these days. How do we get them in our debt if they don’t know about us? That’s when I got the idea to revamp our old commercial for a younger audience. We even toned down the violence,” said a rather dejected Goldman.
“It’s an uncontroversial commercial, perhaps the lamest one I’ve directed so far. There’s not even any nudity,” Qang said during his “Free Photo-shoots for Kids” tour in Asia.
“Everyone loved the Platinum commercial, and that one focuses on deadly weapons. It goes to say that people approve more of killing than they do something as natural and beautiful as making love,” Goldman said about the Alpha Consumer Platinum Card commercial, which still hasn’t been banned from YouTube.
Do you think the commercial violates YouTube’s policy on sexual content?
