If a picture paints a thousand words, what exactly would this TV commercial do for the image of librarians?
The commercial is set in a library. The librarian - wearing glasses and with her hair in a bun - is in the foreground stamping books. Meanwhile, the library user in the background causes the shelves to topple like dominos. This, apparently, causes the librarian to have a headache, the voiceover promotes Biogesic as a safe and effective painkiller, and after the librarian gets over her headache - presumably because she took Biogesic - she calmly tells the user, "Pulutin mo 'yan" (Pick that up).
I really don't know what to say.
