ANA Offends Pinocchio

It seems that a Japanese airline, All Nippon Airways (ANA), has managed to upset some of its customers by screening an advert that some view as racist.

The advert, which you can watch for yourselves, shows a Japanese actor transformed into a Pinocchio lookalike. FYI in some parts of Asia Pacific, some locals refer to Westerners as "long noses".

An ANA spokeswoman is quoted by the Japan Times saying that said the carrier “has received calls from customers, mostly foreigners, complaining about the ad.”
We apologized to each of the customers for having caused uncomfortable feelings and also thanked them for bringing up the issue.

We have passed on the issue to the section in charge of the advertisement, but as of now we have yet to decide how to deal with the commercial.”
Personally speaking the advert just looks rather cheesy.

  1. It must be really awful being a modern human.....I am glad I am older and thick skinned.....I'd hate to be offended by the least little thing; it must make life almost unbearable.

    Tip for the young and sensitive......Sticks and stones may break your bones, but names will never hurt you!......Now, just grow up and get a life!

  2. THe perpetually outraged are really starting to wear my last nerve. Offended by a commercial? Please.
