Is that Mountain Dew commercial ‘racist’ or what?
Keeping in mind a black guy created it…
Uber-leftoid Dangerous Minds says nope:
I can kinda see what Professor Watkins sees thru his eyes when he watches the ad, but from where I’m sitting, what I’m seeing is a pretty ridiculous sketch comedy spot about a goat (voiced by Tyler) who goes a little crazy on a Mountain Dew bender and runs afoul of the law (this is but one in a series of artist directed spots with this goat character).
Ed Driscoll rounds up other (conservative) reactions, which lean toward the “yes” side.
