Fashion Brand Pulls Culture Flip With Burqa-Themed Ad

Hamburg-based MAYD has created a haunting commercial, entitled Hide, for fashion brand Paisley which makes interesting use of the burqa. For over a minute, we get a David Lynch-like vibe as cuts of a woman's face and a burka-clad figure are intercut with other delightfully odd shots like a turbin-clad man toasting a polar bear.

Then...with full flair fashion ad dramatics, the woman pulls off the burqa to reveal...a very GQ-ish man dressed in a suit. That's followed by the tagline, Better Hide Your Man, which, we suppose, is meant to turn the table on the whole hiding of Muslim women thing.
