Pierce Brosnan Criticized for Indian Breath Freshener Commercial

India has been shaken and stirred by the appearance of a former James Bond in an advertising campaign for Pan Bahar, which markets a traditional Indian breath freshener, or “pan masala” in Hindi, that is a mixture of nuts, seeds, herbs and spices.

Brosnan’s endorsement has come as a surprise to critics given that the use of pan masala has never been seen as a healthy habit as some studies have suggested it may include ingredients that can cause cancer. Usually taken after-meals, it is also blamed for red-colored spit stains in public spaces across India.
