Misnamed Package

Intech yesterday had these TMNet advertisements:
'Wang' means money in malay, however combining it with 'Package' certainly gives it a whole different spin. This poor combination is definitely a branding fail for TMNet.

For those unclear of what 'Wang' could be a slang of, JonJonB clearly illustrates what it means.
Purely in the interests of science, I have replaced the word "wand" with "wang" in the first Harry Potter Book ... (read it)
This will certainly evoke horrible imagery when you next go to Sungai Wang.

yk.
