Whenever my American husband hears someone talking so loudly, whether it’s someone who’s talking on his cellphone like it was ten feet away, or a lovers’ quarrel outside our gate, or a guest who has such a loud voice it’s torture to sit at the dinner table with her, he whispers to me, “Where’s the Boysen Paint?” Why, you may ask, does he need Boysen Paint?
Boysen is a paint brand in the Philippines. There’s this Filipino television commercial, “Home Sweet Home”, which is the funniest commercial we’ve ever seen. In the commercial, the husband uses Boysen Paint for more than just covering the wall. It made us laugh so hard till our cheeks hurt and our eyes became watery. Here’s the clip. Enjoy.
