I was watching t.v the other night and there was this whisky ad. I’ve seen it many times and never thought twice about it. But then it suddenly dawned on me that the ad shows people on construction sites, building hi-ways and in factories singing about Whiskey and raising their glasses. It got me to thinking about - Do Taiwanese approve of drinking at work??
I asked my students and they told me that many construction workers get this whiskey and mix it with coffee to give them a super high energy feeling. :shock: Correct me if I am wrong but doesn’t liquor slow your reflexes?? :?: :?: :?:
They went on to add that this is a part of Taiwan culture and also includes truck drivers drinking this stuff on the job. I am staying well clear of every truck from now on. :shock: :shock: :shock:
Do you feel comfortabe with the guy building your house drinking on the job? If I was building a sky rise I wouldn’t even think about drinking on the job, one slip and SPLAT.
What do you all think? Have you seen the ad in question? Do you think that it is a questionable way to advertise? Do you believe that it is acceptable behaviour?
