Asher explained it well - it's trollololol.

He is "being racist" because he is making fun of the anti-racist crowd, and not because he is racist, but because he finds the ideologies, of race, sex, and religious political correctness, to be a joke to make fun of.

i.e. He makes jokes out of things that other people take very seriously, because he find their seriousness to be laughable.


It's a worthy troll.

What I can't figure out is exactly how is that commercial supposed to make me want to go out and buy a bottle of Mountain Dew?


Stupidest commercial EVER! I don't care if its perceived as being racist, they guys who made it should be blackballed from the ad industry for life for putting out that garbage.

"stereotyping" is not "racism" - there is a difference. Stop giving stuff the wrong label or the more sensationalist one to fit your skewed agendas...

however...

Like FortAnthem said...

THIS is what is all about. The ad itself makes no sense at all!!!!!! Its just stupid...

Just because a black guy produced means it is not racist?

Is he the leader of black people? he decides whats racist and what is not?

The Commercial is racist, the maker just made money, since he picked on his own people, he is probably a low life that would sell his identity for money.

Maybe next time when getting $100,000 bonuses, the top dogs will at least watch the commercial they release before they release it.

This is not racist, it's just stupid attempt to appeal to the wacky sense of humor of their target audience...teenage boys. It fails terribly at it, I should know as I have the maturity of their target audience and was utterly confused by it.

The only thing done well in this ad campaign is how quickly Pepsi is making these ads disappear from the web.

However Stereotyping promotes Racism when over used.

If you say, "Asians can't drive" long enough, on newspaper, TV and commercials, people will start to believe it.

Stereotypes are normally often true in some way though....
From personal experiences, I can account for it.
hahaha

Yes, times don't change right? people stay the same thru out the generation i guess? once a slave always a slave?

Stereotypes takes the worst minority of everyone and projects on the majority, and never gets updated as times go by.

From what I saw in the video... the Goat was the one who beat up the woman... the other dudes were just in the police line-up.

It is CLEARLY implied that this talking goat was the perpetrator.

So.... again... how is this racist?

Racism is on the point of its long awaited death.
In fact, racism will be officially dead when Obama is out of office.
The only people that don't want it to die are the ones that keep looking for it.

This video portrays the racist stereotype about white women and misogynist farm animals. The guy who made this video must secretly hate white women and farm animals.
