Is This Mountain Dew Ad the Most Racist Commercial Ever?
I came across this story from ABC News about a television commercial for Mountain Dew, and it’s being called by critics as ‘the most racist commercial ever’. Before I watched the video, my first thought was whoever gave it such a title must be overreacting. I’m certain that Pepsico (the makers of Mountain Dew) has people who look closely at the commercials they put on the air, and would pull the plug on such an ad.
Check out the news report:
After watching, it’s a really dumb commercial that has nothing to do with soda. Is it racist? I don’t think so. Maybe it’s rapper-ist, if there is such a thing. But that’s just my opinion.
What do you think? Should Pepsico have pulled the ad and apologized?
