Creepy? Realistic? Sign of the times?
In a bid to win over more tourists, Thailand’s Tourism Authority produced another controversial promotional video that toes the line between playful and inappropriate.
A broken hearted man decides to travel the world to forget his own pain. He’s drawn to Instagram user “love_en_route” and decides to follow her pictures across Thailand.
He ends up meeting and pursuing the unwilling participant until she eventually warms to his advances.
The film is beautifully set around the most exotic parts of Thailand.
Still, it makes you question the tastefulness: is it ok to stalk someone if you’re doing it for love?
