Susan Roces' Ritemed Commercial is Unintentionally Funny

I don't know if I'm the only one but I can't help but laugh whenever I see the Ritemed commercial featuring veteran actress Susan Roces on TV.

What makes it funny for me are the two scenes where Ms. Roces closes her eyes while raising her hand in a sort of a pledge. It reminds me of a pray over for someone's soul. If the advertisement was for a naturopathic treatment or maybe faith healing, the gesture would have looked okay but it looks awkward in an ad for medicines.

But the real reason why I laugh whenever I see the ad is because Ms. Roces' gesture reminds me of Maneki Neko. Yeah, that lucky cat statuette we commonly see near the entrance of business establishments.
