We were getting back to the лучший пляж на Пхукете, and I was chatting with my friend comparing where we ate to the restaurants Bangkok has when a stroller began to cross the intersection in front of us. It took me a while to figure out what was going on, but when it was all over: hotel in the center of Patong was recording a promotional ad about the activities you must do in Patong.
I saw the stroller moving in the middle of the intersection where the cars move. I saw the stroller but I didn’t see anyone pushing it. The road was wide, one of those roads where at least two cars can pass at the same time.
For a moment, I didn’t know whether to scream or run towards the stroller. My friend calls my attention and points to the stroller first, then the people on the other side of the road. A little crowd was watching what was going on.
Suddenly, two cars approach at high speed. The stroller seems to stop and overturn on its side before being hit. An adult man emerges: he wore only a sort of giant diaper and a blue cloak. Then he begins to shout something in the local language. I think that he spoke Thai.
The man disguised as a child looks upwards. Following his gaze, I notice that there is a camera placed on a mechanical arm. I understand then that it is an advertisement. I heard the director yelling “cut” after the man finished his monologue.
I did not understand what he was saying, but I think it had something to do with some nearby spa, as I think I recognized the word for “stress”.
Just Kidding Lol. A hotel in the center of Patong was recording this commercial ad to advertise some of the nearby attractions. I didn’t understand what he was saying for the most part, but it was surreal.
