Back in the 70s, before brand consultants were paid vast sums to ensure that every product name was globally acceptable, it wasn’t unusual to find Swedish washing powder called ‘Poo’ or Brazilian sweets called ‘Arse’. In fact, Chris Tarrant fronted an entire TV show about it.
In 5 months, though, we hadn’t come across a single example of rude branding…until we hit Malaysia. Ladies and gentlemen, we offer you one chocolate covered peanut treat and one men’s outfitters. Enjoy.
