I think this is quite a shame, I loved that ad.

Hopefully it will be replaced by something just as good in the near future.

I thought it was bloody brilliant to be honest,
they just used a Malaysian bloke to show they deploy anywhere,
so people don't just think it's just Iraq and Afghanistan they go to,
also if they would have used a Muslim from one of these countries,
someone would have said it depicts all Muslims as crazy terrorists.

Also the jungle and beach setting fit the "by sea, by land" thing pretty well,
and it looked cool.

They couldn't have used an English bloke as the bad guy,
because how often do marines slot English people?,
so they used someone,
that wouldn't flare up issues with Muslims,
and they happened to pick some Malaysian bloke,
but to be honest,
if the bloke they got to play the bad guy,
thought it showed Malaysians in a bad light,
I'm sure he wouldn't have done it.

Mate,
chances are Malaysians are fine with it,
it's white politicians that do things like this,
"just incase" they upset anyone,
like the changing of the nursery rhyme bar bar black sheep,
to bar bar rainbow sheep,
but even if people didn't exist,
there would still be black sheep,
wanting to change the name of the black country,
even though it was called that because of all the industry in the area which made thick black smog cover it.

Ethnic minorities usually aren't offended by these things at all,
because they are not racist,
so they don't offend anyone.

That sucks *text deleted**text deleted*, to be frank. Whoever they used in the advert, chances are it would have had the same result. Everything's too *text deleted* PC.

Yeah!! right!! Try using the IRA guys or the KKK rather then a Malaysian..

"should he know that it would be bad for Malays, he would not do it" What nonsense is all that..Mannn it all about $$$.

*text deleted* the translation Malay to English in that advert is TOTALLY wrong...and misleading the white guys, thats one of the reason why the Malaysian govt opposed..

And the advert was supposedly produce in Brunei...another nonsense..more dirty politics...But hang on...out there people are so gullible...there are just like a mushroom...kept in the dark and feed them nothing but full of S*text deleted*t!

Its a British ad, for the British Royal Marines
and was shown in Britain

its disgusting

in my opinion its all about the british government bending over backwards to avoid any possible insinuations about everybody else,

diversity has ruined our government in my opinion theyve become to obsessed about who they may offend with pointless little things, every slightest thing that may have some chance of offending one person in 10,000,000 they have to get rid of.

i loved that advert, really depicted some of the things that the Royal Marines stand for using non discriminatory methods which have now been deemed racist by our government.

I think thats a great shame because I liked that advert, its funny seeing a weird looking crazy man shouting in malaysian, then walking away and a group of royal marines following him quietly and skilfully.

Its just annoying that theres always somebody finding something offensive - even if it has nothing to do with them.

I liked that advert :bigsmile:

Thats weird, my best mate is malaysian ill show it him and ask him what it means.

I've changed it for you

PC crowd at it again.

I believe most peopel viewing the add wouldn't even know it was malaysian being spoken, I only knew due to a friend from said country.

The reason theres so many racists around - say anything your now branded it.
Such as saying "yuck" to foreign food as a toddler, could get the toddler branded... :applaus: gogo PC crowd.
