In General

The letter that came along with the Standard Chartered Visa credit card I received today, explicity says “Do not hand over your credit card to anyone” and the latest TV commercial featuring Pierce Brosnan just goes to promote the opposite. When the Phut Phut (Bangkok’s auto rickshaw) in which Mr.Bond travels crumbles, he whizzes out his Visa card to the auto rickshaw driver. The next scene shows the driver revving a brand new Harley Davidson powered Phut Phut. Obviously when Mr.Bond had been dateing his girl in a posh restaurant, the driver has used Bond’s credit card to buy his new vehicle. Not the right message to convey thru.
