International Disney Ads

From Cinematical.com:

I'm all for creative advertising, but sometimes it blows my mind to see the stuff these giant firms approve of. Like have you seen that Heineken commercial where the kids are all singing in the cab and then the words "Let a stranger drive you home" appear on the screen. Yeah, that's exactly what I want to do Mr. Heineken -- I want to get trashed and let a total stranger drive me home. Thanks for the wonderful advice.

And then there's these ads featuring Disney characters that don't seem to make a whole lot of sense. Super Punch noticed them on the M&C Saatchi site labeled Travel & Tourism, and they apparently come from Buena Vista International. Each ad features a picture with the tagline "Life should be a bit more Disney" -- and I can kinda "get" it for two of the three, but what's up with the one that shows Prince Charming approaching a woman in a burka? Am I missing something here? Do these all make perfect sense to you? And if anyone out there knows what these are advertising, do let us know in the comments.

Check out all three images below.

Okay, that burka ad might be pushing it a bit far. It actually comes across rather sad to me.

But, the Heineken ad is just saying to take a cab when you're drunk. You know, don't drink and drive. I enjoy that ad.

I thought that was rather obvious as well . . . .
