Kings & Queens, manufacturer of shower gels in Athens, has launched an advertising campaign linking their products with feeling of being 21st royalty in an urban culture. King Solomon and Queen of Sheba hang out together in a trailer park. A reference of the Biblical account of the African queen’s visit to Israelite King Solomon. Queen Nefertiti caters for a customer’s honey fetish. A reference to the wife of Egyptian Pharaoh Akhenaten. The Chinese Princess tests a jasmine solution in the laboratory, a reference to a legend in which a Chinese princess planted only jasmine in her garden to remind her lover of his vows. Cyberpunk Caspar interacts with the world online, a reference to the visit of the Magi.
