Nepalese Advertising

So I have noticed something as I have been wandering about this city. There are lots of adverts for what are clearly brands of spirits, but these are clumsily disguised as other things.


I guarantee that this “water” is in no way refreshing

The most common disguise is “Music CDs”, as shown in the following adverts for Ruslan Vodka (sic), Romanov Vodka and Seagram’s Whisky.


I drank this last night, and it wasn’t as terrible as I expected.


Good question sir. I couldn’t possibly comment.

I assume that there is a ban on direct advertising of strong spirits, and these ads are examples of white how easy it is to get around that ban.

Also, it would appear that the rise of the robots is coming, from an unexpected source…
