Ad Watch - Ditto Inspiration!

Saw the Dettol advert recently. It’s been there for some time, but I always changed the channel. Now, when I saw it fully, I realised that it’s a surefire inspiration.

Yes, an inspiration from the videos trending on the net, where the supposed Planet X, Nibiru is nearing the Earth. In this ad, the Evil One plans to stop water from being supplied to the Earthlings, so that the kids cannot fight him with Dettol. After it’s done, he jumps from his planet onto the Earth. But the enterprising kids defeat him with hand sanitizers!

Lovely, isn’t it? The kids win against the germ-anic aliens, and Dettol is big. No wonder they say the next war will be on water!
