Just want to see who thinks this is a funny video

www.youtube.com...

I didn’t make the video, and will keep my opinion to myself for now.

Flame suite is at the cleaners!

Just checking in to see who has a sense of humor…….

How about neither?

I could have been funny, but it wasn't.

Mean spirited? Nope, just stupid.

What's so funny about that video? It's boring and stupid.


I laughed about the Home Depot Video, just the idea is so absurd

The coupon is only for guatamalans.
No really, how can you not laugh about that?

I thought it was funny but it wouldn't surprise me if some (e.g. PC brigade) were offended by this. Now if the "products" were women, you would probably be receiving quite a number of flames!

It's not funny or mean spirited.

It's the truth and not just for "day laborers" or people not born in the USA. this fact of life now extends to the middle class office worker as well.

People being treated like objects. Only as good as their day's production and being used and thrown away like a dirty kleenex when they are of "no more use".

This is what happens when you have a society that has allowed the large corporations to rule vs the people.

Being a white male, and seeing white males being constantly portrayed as morons, this felt different. I took it as funny, and telling of the times we live in.

Let's not forget all the people we saw in that movie were ACTORS. They were not slave, nor day laborers...


But I guess some would have preferred to see a white man being a moron. That is always funny...

While I always enjoy a good laugh , this was not it .

It was a poor attempt at humor that failed . Trust me , if it had been funny , I would have laughed , but it wasn't .

Just stupid .

I husband works for Home Depot, so I sent him the link.

I think it is neither funny, nor mean-spirited.
I't's mildly humorous, and mildly offensive. Of course, I'm not a day laborer, nor Hispanic.

As a white person that was a day laborer I find it stupid.

www.laborready.com...

But I guess that everyone that works day labor must be illegal right?

It is just sad. The fact is that America hates hispanics. No one is crying about H1 labor in the news, only mexicans.

Bush wanted to build a wall but couldn't because he would have to ask the illegals to build in and then hop over it.

People in this country are asleep. We, as citizens, are allowing a corrupt government to piss away our children's future and steal every right granted to a US citizen while we cikcer over stupid stuff like gay marriage, terrorism (boogeyman), immigration and healthcare.

The video itself is another example of using humor to deflect and maintain the staus quo. Human psychology 101.

It was funny. All the PC's need to pull the stick out and get a sense of humor. If it had been about hillbilly rednecks, they'd be laughing their butts off saying how wonderful it was.

I want that minute and thirty-seven seconds of my life back. I honestly see no problem with this. The actors were Spanish and it was obviously in good fun BUT it was a very sad attempt at being fun. I am surprised that a Home Depot let them do this. Somebody had some serious connections at the Depot. Holla.
