Chinese Lingerie Company Reveals Bizarre Princess Di Ad

Wearing nothing more than her tiara, royal jewels, and lingerie, Princess Di plays the cello while what appears to be a ginger Prince Harry holds her sheet music. My first question when looking at this ad made by Chinese lingerie company Jealousy International: did Diana even play the cello? No, according to my research. In a way this absolutely surreal ad is genius. How could anyone even think of it! But then the copy gets creepy: "Feel the romance of British royalty." We know royal families have a reputation of inbreeding, but I'm sure they would find nothing romantic about a mother practicing her music sans clothes in front of her child.

Since yesterday marked the 13th anniversary of Princess Diana's death, the ads from China have caused quite a stir in England. Do you find the ads offensive or just bizarre?

I'm not offended just confused, and a tad creeped out?? lol. Plus why would a member of the royal family be prancing around in her underwear??

I can see why people may find it offensive, but to me, it's more just really, really bizarre.

Nothing about this ad goes together. Romance doesn't go with cellos or lingerie in front of children Diana didn't play cello She also probably didn't prance around in undies in front of Prine Harry Why Diana of all people to use in a lingerie ad? Why a cello of all props to use in a lingerie ad? I'm so perplexed (and I could somewhat say offended - the woman has passed, let her memory live on without using her in advertising), but I can't say I'm surprised...Chinese ads do this ALL THE TIME...they never make sense. God knows if this kind of thing would work to sell underwear in China?!
