Is This Mountain Dew Ad Racist?

Submitted by: fancylad 3 years ago Misc

Mountain Dew thought so after viewers said it was arguably the most racist ad in history. You make the call, I-A-B.

its racist coming even if it IS coming from Tyler...and ANYONE who knows him knows that this is what he was going for anyway...Pepsi should have known better than to let him direct ANYTHING outside of Loiter Squad...

it doesn`t say African-Americans are criminals. just that the cop round them up for every crime even one committed by a goat.

Or just statistically accurate.
Reality is not racist.

@ Daegog

You would be disgusted with some of the B.S. in the advertising industry. Those people are so corrupt and horrible. Seriously.

If I told you how much the executive got paid to approve that ad.. and how little he/she actually put effort into doing their job, you would PUKE.

Do I think it`s racist? Nope.
Do I think people will think it`s racist? Yes.

Was it a good ad? Absolutely not.
Painfully, painfully lame.

@turbotong`s Linky! Thanks!

It`s not "racist" but it IS:
Sexist
drating offensive

Jesus Tap-dancing Christ! It`s one of the least "funny" and most offensive things I`ve seen in ages...
Boycott Pepsi! Stupid draters...

who the hell greenlights these commercials?

What manager/vp of advertising saw this and thought, yeah lets run this one. I appreciate that all kinda silly ideas get tossed around but to go into production and put it out there?

so sad.

Political Correctness has gotten out of hand if we`re afraid of offending goats.

Racist? Possibly.

Stupid? Definitely.

On either grounds the ad agency should be fired.

If it`s funny (or even very slightly humorous) it isn`t racist.

Funny and I see nothing racist.

But in fairness, the only ones who can say if this is really insensitive is the people it`s making fun of. So we should ask some goats if this bothers them.

Usually, if the race and gender of the perp are known, the suspects will be of the same race and gender as the perp. In this case, the perp was black. Very rare, I know. Now, that said, it is a lame, terrible commercial.
