A new Romanian campaign dubbed "Why Don't You Come Over" has a royal twist and a bit of mockery. The ad campaign claims all of the country's native women either look like Kate Middleton or her younger and very attractive sister, Pippa. "Half our women look like Kate. The other half, like her sister," BBC quotes the unusual tourist campaign as bragging about the women of Romania.
But using the Middleton sisters as the face of the Romanian tourist campaign is just the tip of the iceberg. According to a Feb. 6 report by BBC, the ads are actually poking fun at the UK's rising anxiety over a possible "Romanian Invasion." The British public is apparently growing increasingly concerned about a possible influx of Romanian nationals flocking to the UK, next year, when restrictions on workers from Bulgaria and Romania are lifted.
The website Gandul, which is hosting the "Why Don't You Come Over" campaign is attempting to attract UK workers and tourists to Romania in what appears to be a mockery. The site invites Romanians to post local job opportunities for UK workers and even brags that the country is good enough for Prince Charles, who purchased a home there eight years ago. Other tag lines that poke at the pride of Brits include: "We may not like Britain, but you'll love Romania" and "Our draft beer is less expensive than your bottled water."
The palace has not commented on the likeness of Kate Middleton and Pippa being used in the Romanian ad campaign.
