Get off in Thailand (AirAsia)

As a non-native speaker it took me a moment to find out what the ambiguous meaning of this phrase is about :biggrin:

AirAsia used it as an advert promoting flights from Brisbane to Bangkok.

It reminds me of an almost equally infamous billboard advertisement in Melbourne a few years ago for Cockatoo Wines (a cockatoo is an Australian parrot).  It showed a famous female model and the simple slogan "She enjoys a cockatoo".  The advertisement stayed there for months
