'Runaway ostrich' craze heats up with unique ads
Although the bird has been rescued and is now safely with her owner and friend, her fame is apparently still going strong.
The ostrich has become a phenomenon among Malaysian, so much so that the day after her surprise appearance on the Federal Highway, several organisations have latched onto her ‘feathers’.
Smartphone maker Huawei was arguably the first, to capitalise on the ostrich trend.
On their Facebook page yesterday, they posted an image of their phone being used to capture the image of an ostrich, boasting of their in-phone camera’s focus with the tagline, “Focus faster than a feathered fugitive.”
Domino’s meanwhile promoted their two pizza deal for Ramadan, featuring an image of an ostrich carrying pizzas.
Yesterday, in a video posted to Facebook by user Jeff Sandhu, Chickaboo was seen running in the midst of heavy traffic on the highway.
The ostrich had apparently escaped from a truck near Universiti Malaya while it was being transported.
