Anyone remember this Thai TV advert ?   what was it for ..I vaguely remember it was a Telenor add

..but can't find any other clips of this ADD  (except my bad recording of it)

 

They have no notion of the meaning ‘land of smiles’. Thai smile can nveys a series of hidden emotions. To smile can meant to be sad, happy, amuse, bemuse, puzzled, clueless, admitting fault, non confrontational, escalating tension, in fact any human emotion masked by a smile. A smile can be performed followed by a muay Thai kick to your face. So the only genuine smile you can get from a thai is when they smile while pocketing your money.

I often get a nice smile from the cute 7/11 (Big C , Tesco, Family Mart) girl while she is pocketing my money 😋

If one gets deported, who buys the plane ticket?  If one can't afford to buy a ticket or claims to not be able to, what happens?  Does one stay in the detention until somebody somehow shows up with a ticket with this guys's name on it?

Yes. That, or money for a ticket.

which is part of a broader paternalistic and misguided effort to 'restore happiness to the Thai people' by encouraging a return to traditional ways and values free from corrupting foreign influences.

So they're gonna roll back all the changes Phibun made in the 1940s, return topless traditional costumes and ban pad Thai.

Let's face it Thai tradition/hospitality/friendliness is as fake as their smiles.

Real Thailand is corruption, yaba, gang attacks and road rage.

Why did he kill someone? How about not wasting a space in a cell and just throw him out and blacklist him....if they locked everyone up for nicking a couple of hundred baht of goods half of Thailand would be behind bars.

How true. The only time my condo manager smiled was when I paid the rent. This was a girl, mind you, who sent me a Valentine's card. Talk about weird. I wouldn't even venture to put a toe into the black sea of infinity that was her mind, I'll stay on my placid island of ignorance, thank you very much. She did gibber at me in Thai every now and then, God knows what she was saying; it was probably significant.
