Aruba’s Social Column “Bati Bleki” by Rona Coster October 13th, 2014

Page-05FRESH & CRAZY. The recent Banjolux Bathroom Accessories & Supplies commercials played in theaters make me laugh. The first one, with the man destroying his bathroom to make room for an upgraded version by Banjolux gets my full support. I like this entertaining angle better than the previous, so called risqué, magical-reality commercial with showers in the jungle. This one with the dust, protective coverall and heavy duty hammer was funny. Both manic husband and kill-joy wife were credible and loveable. But this week, I had to take a second look, then it was over. And I am going to the movies again on Sunday, just to get to the bottom, no pun intended, of the new commercial featuring three totally nude, very muscular and tattooed hunks, lined up in the shower, sharing a red, slippery bar of soap.

This is the simple message of the famous Bhagavad-Gita, and is found most other places where enlightenment is discussed. It seems like a conflicting idea to our logical mind.
