Volkswagen Super Bowl Ad Called Racist [VIDEO]
The Super Bowl ad that Volkswagen plans to run is being called racist, because it’s about how driving a VW Beetle makes you so happy you talk in a thick Jamaican accent. Volkswagen says it consulted 100 Jamaicans before releasing the ad, and used a speech coach to get the accent right. But the company has other ads to run in its place if this one causes too much controversy.
After watching the spot, I’ll admit, I laughed. It was clever and made me smile. Sometimes, I think people can be a little over sensitive.
Watch the ad and tell us what you think? Do you think the commercial is racistt?
