The other day a person posted a picture on Instagram of a dog that looks like a loaf of bread. On the picture itself was written “Kalb al toast, sub7an al khaliq, wallah fi khlaqah shu2oon!”. Then the person wrote “sub7an al khaliq” as the caption. I was dumbfounded at the stupidity. Then I got aggravated that people’s comments showed that they believed that it’s loaf-shaped-dog and not just a picture!! People have the ability to ignore the facts and believe whatever they see/read/hear.
The problem is the person who uploaded the picture and the people who commented are in their 40′s!! At that age I would seriously expect much more wisdom.The second I saw it I knew: 1 – a dog would never sit on a cutting board, 2 – it’s photoshoped, 3 – it’s a Lifebuoy advertisement!! I have seen the ad a couple of years ago and I found it very creative. Of course, I decided to intervene and commented on the picture with a link of the real ad. The person never replied. I guess it was too hard to face the truth.
I really wanted to post the picture, but it’s really not clear! Here’s the actual ad:
Be honest, would you have believed that this was a real dog?
