Paisley - "Hide" / Burqa in LA - (2014) :60 (Germany)

A sleek luxury car is driven around town by someone in an orange silk burqa. We see your usual shopping, a goldfish is bought, a visit to a café, a chat with a friend, intercut with flashes of a woman's face.

At the end comes the reveal. Her man looks so good in his Paisley fitted suit that she has to hide him from other women, in a burqa.
Cue controversy in 3...2...1

Actually, I really like it. The reaction from male colleagues here at Adland was the exact opposite. Courting controversy for controversies sake they said. I'm like : Did you see how gorgeous that suit makes him?

I see where the guys are all "yeah right" about the burqa. I was waiting for the expected reveal. Good use of symbols I said after pretty guy was let out. I totally missed the point on first look.
