Thai bathroom-cleaner ad exceptionally odd

Copyranter has proclaimed this Vixol Red bathroom-cleaner spot by McCann Thailand possibly the best commercial he's ever seen. In my estimation, it would need meerkats or a claw-tongued robot kid to qualify, but it is wonderfully campy and entertaining as only insane Asian ads can be. That stall's bigger than most apartments; it would fetch $2,500 a month in Manhattan. The Gumby-limbed mildew-man gives a fantastic performance. He really captures he essence of scum. In a good way. The gals here in the office say the same about me. In a bad way, I'm afraid.
