Have you heard of Harith Iskander 3-in-1 joke?
It is said to be one his funniest acts, which many of his Malaysian fans might have overlooked or missed all this time.
I am talking about this bald chubby Malaysia’s premier stand-up comedian Harith Iskander’s three commercials.
Harith Iskander 3-In-1 Joke
Let’s take a look at the three products which Harith Iskander endorsed.
Two of them are what we called instant consumer product and the third one is so-called health product.
First, Harith is promoting Nescafe 3-in-1 instant coffee.
We all know that drinking all these premixed beverages is never a healthy choice.
The instant premixed coffee is smooth and foamy, but definitely not funny; as it is laden with excessive sugar, which is associated with obesity, heart disease and diabetes.
Besides the high sugar content in the combo packets, that causes rapid spikes in blood sugar, the nondairy creamers often contain trans-fatty acids, which allow them to be stable at high temperatures, which are known to be dangerous for heart health.
Then the same Harith Iskander went on to promote how sedap (tasty) is Mi Sedaap Kari Instant Noodle.
Again we all know that consuming too much of this convenient instant noodle is harmful to one’s health.
Instant noodle is high in carbohydrates, sodium and other food additives.
As reported in a study, it says that even the occasional eating instant noodle, might increases your risk of cardio-metabolic syndrome, which can cause heart disease, diabetes, and even strokes.
At the same time, this Malaysia’s premier stand-up comedian Harith is promoting healthy lifestyle for Essentiale Forte N.
According to its ad, this drug relieves symptoms of liver damage / disorders, such as: pain in the right upper abdomen and loss of appetite.
Now, isn’t Harith Iskander deadly funny? (no pun intended)
That’s why I called this Harith Iskander 3-in-1 joke.
Companies are paying the same funny guy to promote unhealthy foodstuff and also telling us to lead a healthy life by taking care of our liver at the same time.
No wonder, Harith Iskander is laughing all his way to the bank.
