Wordless Wednesday - Shopping Mall In Tehran

"Proving Hollywood's global appeal, posters of stars Al Pacino and Humphrey Bogart adorn the entrance to a shopping mall in central Tehran where pirate movies are in demand."

I have always found shopping experiences around the globe to be fascinating! How, and what we shop for says a lot about our societies, and often, as is illustrated by the photo above, proves that we are really not all that different. Granted they are showing very good taste in my opinion. I would have been a bit horrified to see Paris Hilton's mug promoting the mall. ;)

For non WW participants, yes I realise it is Tuesday in the USA, but WW is open to people around the globe so I occasionally like to post them for people living in areas where yes it is already Wednesday, and are already taking part in WW .. :)

Happy Wordless Wednesday! Thank you for stopping by!

Cheers!

Great photo. I know from people who live in Iran that an official ban on a product is often just a minor hindrance!

Happy WW

well . . isn't that the truth of it all . . and I am scared at what message we send with our movies and TV shows . . .heck even at home, I know my hubby got some erronious ideas about ladies from movies. I mean really . . . Do you like to kiss in the rain? Perhaps when I was 15 and bought into the whole Hollywood idea myself . . but now, rain is something to GET OUT OF!

Pacino is such an icon now.

"Say hello to his little friend..."

And Bogie is just cool!

Thanks for sharing.

Happy WW!

Boy that is just crazy. You know I'll never get over what people from other countries find fascinating about us. I suppose it goes both ways, no?

I agree: doesn't matter where, we are basically the same and we certainly all want the same things for our families!
