Bunty from an old Lifebuoy ad on handwashing goes ‘viral’ amid Coronavirus crisis
Although played for laughs in the ad, social media has been appreciating the young scout for his simple wisdom on handwashing
Bunty, a character from an old Lifebuoy Handwash ad, has been trending on social media years after the commercial was released. The young scout, who was played for laughs, told his mates that one should wash one’s hand for a full one minute to ensure it’s germ-free. His friends who used Lifebuoy Handwash, which supposedly did the job in 10 seconds, ridiculed him for his “slow” soap. But in the light of the coronavirus crisis and increased emphasis on hand hygiene, social media has been appreciating Bunty’s simple wisdom.
The internet has been celebrating Bunty in the form of memes and jokes and they are certainly worth a chuckle. Here are a few.
