Fly Thai, Get Laid – Thai Airways Promoting Soi Cowboy

Thai Airways Promoting Soi Cowboy

I had to look twice when I seen Thai Airways promoting Soi Cowboy, one of Bangkok’s infamous redlight districts, on an official social media channel today.

It would appear that the marketing team responsible for Thai Airways India Twitter feed haven’t been watching the news from Thailand over the past six or seven months and didn’t get the message that this is exactly the image the government doesn’t want for the country.

The Tweet was posted around 12.30pm Thai time on December 24th and reads: Explore #Bangkok’s dynamic nightlife when you are in the City of Angels. #Travel. It is accompanied by a photo watermarked with the THAI logo showing a night scene from Soi Cowboy.

Are Thai Airways using the worlds oldest profession and marketing tool to sell seats? Everyone knows sex sells and the use of this particular photo along with the term “dynamic nightlife” suggests that was the subliminal message of the Tweet. Why not just go the whole hog and use the slogan, Fly Thai, Get Laid?

I have a feeling someone is going to be out of work by the end of the day.
