Preetipls’ apology for taken down video exactly mirrors Havas’ apology for E-Pay ‘brownface’ ad
Preetipls and Subhas Nair recently released what appears to be an apology for their video.
If you found Preetipls and Subhas Nair’s apology a bit familiar, or lacking, perhaps this was by design.
Here is Havas’ first apology.
“The message behind this advertising campaign is that e-payment is for everyone.
For that reason, Dennis Chew, well-known for his ability to portray multiple characters in a single production in a light-hearted way, was selected as the face of the campaign.
He appears as characters from different walks of life in Singapore, bringing home the point that everyone can e-pay.
We’re sorry for any hurt that was unintentionally caused.
Behind the ad is an initiative to provide greater convenience to consumers, merchants and small food businesses.”

“The message behind this music video is that opportunities must be for everyone.
For that reason, K. Muthusamy, well-known for his ability to address privilege, power, and censorship in a single production in a light-hearted way, was selected as the face of this music video.
He speaks to characters from all walks of life in Singapore, bringing home the point that only some people truly pay.
We’re sorry for any hurt that was unintentionally caused. Behind this music video is an initiative to provide greater consciousness to consumers, corporations, and the many faces of Singapore.”
