Booby Trap

03 Jun

So here’s that ad from 1999 that’s got all the sex-starved Bipasha Basu fans on Youtube slavering for more. My favoritest tabloid in forever says she shot it while undergoing an out-of-body experience as a naive, camera-unaware model in New York:

“I have a very short memory and cannot remember anything that happened more than three years ago. Honestly, I don’t remember anything specific about shooting the ad.”

There you go. Perfectly understandable. Was there even a world three years ago? Who knows!

Besides, have you seen the Indian sensibility infused movies she and her peers shoot in Bollywood these days? I fail to understand why this is even a big deal but my favoritest tabloid says this is shocking! Shocking! So it must be. (But she looks good, therefore Jai Hind! Jeetega bhai jeetega, Hindustan jeetega! … or something. I don’t know. Details.)

I wonder if anybody bothered to ask Vivek Oberoi if he remembers any of it. Especially that terrified expression on his face as he sees Bipasha coming towards his face. In his defense, the climax did get pretty ominous – no amount of boobies is worth getting escorted into a darkened tent with unsmiling people who all give you the side eye before their queen descends with purpose upon your face.

Hm. That did not come out the way I meant it.

Also, Earth to crazed Bipasha fans: it’ll take you considerably more than a dollar and a dream to get to that there lady. It just might be easier to win the lottery. Sorry.

      I didnt want to mention it. It’s like speaking of the devil. Who knows what jinx it carries with it?

    Is it just me or is the blogosphere, this post Memorial Day week, really rife (ripe?) with all manner of discussion around memory (or lack thereof) of the mammary? 😀

    “..unsmiling people who all give you the side eye before their queen descends with purpose upon your face” — The way you have Vivek Oberoi coming off as Marc Anthony here, I doubt that he perceived Bipasha (and her, er, perversions) as anything but pulchritudinous. 😛

      PS – Btw, bloody brilliant, this follow up of a Burkha post with a Bipasha one. It’s like trying to say “Ms. Dressed to Please” please meet “Ms. Undressed to Kill” — why can’t we have some bloody balance in our world, women? 😀 It’s like what someone says during the Kamal cameo, introducing Maddy, the new hero, in “Paarthaale Paravasam”: Vecha kudumi, saracha motta! lol. (Sorry folks, imposs. to translate that with effect intact!)

    LOL This is when I’m forcibly reminded of the gap between American me’s sensibilities and others’. When I first saw that commercial all I thought was, “That was so pretty!” I didn’t have any problems with the obvious exotification since clearly it was an ignoramus’ fantasy. And then within a day there were horrified “for shame!” reactions across the interwebs. Oh well. I still think it was pretty, Bips’ nipple included. 😉

      Also, this line: Was there even a world three years ago? Who knows! made me literally laugh out loud.

    The video I saw on Youtube was added May 2009. I wonder why this didn’t “surface on the net” much earlier.

    @ leb – AHAHAHAH @ “he needs a haircut and a movie”.

    @ ACT – well, my stalker was complaining the other day about the lack of boobies on the site so I thought I’d throw him a bone. 😛
    I’m sure he was struck by her, but tell me it didn’t look as though he was literally *struck* by her. especially in that last part where she speeds up and he looks like he just figured out he’s main course.

    @ Ajnabi – “ignoramus’ fantasy” is exactly it! 😀 I mean its ad with an Indian cabbie dreaming about turning into a femme prince and it’s Bips’ boobies that everybody is talking about?

    @ Adithya – And it was shot in 99! Probably took this long for some veyla person to realize what it was they were tuning out.

    @ Dipali – it’s that funny walk of his :mrgreen:
