Air Asia Creates Hilarious Blunder

A recent promotional campaign by AirAsia has caused a stir among the travel industry, especially in Australia.

Apparently, the campaign slogan ‘Get off in Thailand’ has hit a raw nerve with the Aussie snowflakes and complaints have been lodged.

For us observers, it is a hilarious blunder of mega proportions, albeit clearly an innocent mistake by AirAsia’s marketing team. This leads me to wonder if they should pursue a career in comedy writing.

Although clearly an oversight, this indiscretion is a nasty kick in the nuts for political correctness. Meanwhile, Australia’s Collective Shout Women’s Rights Group remain in a state of shock.
