One of the things you learn growing up, is to always read the fine print. After all, you never know what people will trick you with.
According to a group on Facebook, South Korean actor Lee Min Ho (이민호) apparently visited a certain carwash in Sabah. Netizens were amazed, at least until they used a magnifying glass.
Facebook group “Eat, drink and have fun in Sabah (沙巴壹起吃喝玩乐)” stunned netizens yesterday (16th November) with their new finding. According to the post, a certain car wash in Tuaran had supposedly been visited by Lee Min Ho for their services.
Two local men were holding up a banner promoting the carwash. At a glance, the banner, written in Malay, read: “Lee Min Ho has washed his car here.” They even had a photo of the actor beside the words. Netizens were dumbfounded, at least until they discovered a very tiny “not” written between the actor’s name and the rest of the sentence. As such, the full sentence actually reads: “Lee Min Ho has not washed his car here“.
The carwash’s creativity was applauded by netizens. “Marketing level 101,” a user commented. “This business is very savvy,” another said, adding a thumbs up. Others joined in on the joke. “He has been in my dreams,” one said. Another asked for other stars, like BTS.
Well, the business certainly didn’t lie to us. And although the actor has never visited the carwash, it’s marketing tactic certainly did wonders for it. If you’re ever in Tuaran, Sabah, you could consider dropping by the carwash Lee Min Ho did NOT visit ;p
