Huggies Giggle Factory

An advert entirely in English, something I haven’t come across before. Quite wordy, too. It’s hard to tell if the voice over actress is bilingual or not, for while her English is crystal clear, it’s also somewhat unnatural and grating, over stressed  perhaps for the Korean consumer base. But if Huggies were so worried about being lost in translation, why not just do the ad in Korean? The actress is surely Korean anyway – hear how she pronounces that tricky 꺄르륵 part right at the start? Tough stuff.
