“It’s just a fun ad. Now the whole world is going crazy.”
In Singapore, Clearday™ has developed from a small start-up company to a leading international cosmetic brand in less than a year.
But when a draft of the company’s latest skin cream advert is leaked, the video goes viral globally for all the wrong reasons.
YouTube views are in the thousands and keep climbing; anger is building on social media; and journalists are starting to cover the story. This is an international PR nightmare; the company cannot be seen to be racist, they’ve got to get it taken down before America wakes up.
“It’s onBUZZFEED. It’s onBUZZFEED. We’re notdefendingit.”
