In My Wordings 

Kipp was wondering why you one line for two days in Dubai ads focus can be selected? Well, probably that we unfortunately how some of them may be inappropriate can not get now.
What is all this enthusiasm? On this page readers a picture of Kipp was sent in by one. The Dubai International Airport yesterday I saw one ad, which we are duty, Khalifa Bridge in owner apartments.
"The world's tallest tower to date with" the ad is present. Okay with that witty title, a big smile on his hands and even large diamond ring [We believe that what they were going for with that one not) with a picture of a woman. Smiling woman with the next, and a small image Khalifa Bridge "Burj Dubai:. Life for the world will see"
"Life world you will see" - Kipp likes that part, but the Burj Dubai? It's just a case of serious denial or Dubai in the history of young advertising is one of the most oversights? Burj Dubai Burj Khalifa name change after all a rather sensitive topic is not very comfortable that I think about fun. We just expect a little more carefully if the company whose owner is the ad developer Emaar, not by the sensitivity.

I think we can excuse this kind of monitoring, if a week had seen the ad is being displayed, in a month and if we change the name of three months after the drawer should be are.

But come on, you guys are more than a year and a shock has worn off yet. Even Dubai Metro, which Khalifa Bridge as "Burj Dubai" stop all of its routes and its vehicles of this platform was all recorded, special rapid action taken to change it .

A mistake like this a year and three months after the name was changed? Emaar's! Only one pass is entirely fair.
