A Margaret Thatcher ‘lookalike’ is the star of a new ad in Taiwan to promote air conditioning units.
Played by male comedian Shu Jyai-wei, known for his parodies, Thatcher is seen promoting Panasonic, while a King from ancient China prefers Daikin and TaiwaneseTV show host Sisy Chen chooses Hitachi.
The ad, for computer and appliances store 3C, has gone viral since it was released, with one commenter on YouTube saying ‘Hey, she doesn't sound like a grocer's daughter from Grantham. Wait. Neither did Maggie’.
