When we saw Pierce Brosnan endorsing Pan Bahar on the cover page of daily newspapers, most of us were like, “How on earth is this possible”?. Quite shockingly, when TV commercials came out, we found that it is indeed true. Bond was actually promoting a tobacco product.
From the very start, this ad received severe criticism from all corners. Seeing this outrage, Pierce Brosnan justified his stand stating, “His contract only spoke about him advertising a breath freshener tooth whitener which wouldn’t include any ingredient that turns saliva red. He has the greatest love and affection for India and its people and would never have entered into an agreement to promote a product in India that is dangerous to one’s health.”
Twitter is finding it hard to believe his statement because we do expect him to be wise as bond while signing his ad contracts.
Two bonds losing their grace.

The parody account of Chetan bhagat made a sharp analogy.
Pierce Brosnan says he didn’t know reality of Pan Bahar before he signed up to advertise. Sounds like an Indian voter who voted for BJP.Advertisement

All that glitters is not gold.
Pierce Brosnan will soon find out that the “Shaken but not stirred Martini” he was having all these years was actually

Point to be noted!
Pierce Brosnan thought he was endorsing a, “tooth whitener.”
Pan Bahar does whiten your teeth.
They fall out.
Then you get brand new ones.

Next time, Bond, do read the bond before signing!
