This anti-inflammatory cream commercial from India featuring groups of people working together to create Mummenschanz style buses and clock gears is cool unless you start thinking about it.

Right? Pretty cool. Then you start thinking about it and remember that India is overpopulated and largely hungry and this probably isn’t even a visually daring ad but actually a documentary about the caste of workers whose job is to get together and be human puppets. That guy is like “Seriously, you need to buy this cream, it’s the only way to be a bus wheel for fourteen hours a day. I was told that if I do a good job, maybe in a few years I can move up to being the bumper of the bus. My children have dysentery.”

  1. I don’t think even a whole crate of anti-inflammatory cream can help you if you spend fourteen hours a day working as a wheel on a bus. Also, if people have to form to become buses and bus wheels, who is riding these buses?

  2. @aaron – Apparently cows are.
