Censoring AXE Angels in Arabia




So a few months ago, I came across this interesting AXE TV commercial on Youtube.



The idea behind angels falling from heaven, going out of their nature - breaking their halos and approaching the AXE man with anything BUT angelic gestures seemed pretty cool.

The same ad (which i think is originally Spanish) was adapted on a few Arab TV channels. What did the Arabs decide to do? Destroy that interesting idea, remove any element that links those women to angels...in other words, video-edit the golden halos and the wings out... and obviously cut out the last & most important scene where one angel approaches the man with AXE and breaks her halo.
How the fuck is anyone supposed to understand what's happening now?
