Volkswagen is taking alot of heat for one of their upcoming commercials for the Super Bowl next week. The past 2 years, commercials for VW during the big game have been huge for the company, drawing rave reviews while being entertaining. The criticism that they are feeling now has to do with the “get happy” theme of the ad. The car maker used a song from reggae artist Jimmy Cliff. The racist remarks stem from having a white actor being portrayed with a Jamaican accent. In my opinion for someone to try and label this racist or insenstive is quite a strectch. It is meant to be entertaining and funny to all viewers of all races and ethnic backgrounds. While I do understand where some of those feelings can come from because of the accent being used and the cast of the commercial being mainly caucasian, that is where the humor is supposed to be found. To me, this ad does not come off in any shape, form or fashion as being insenstive. But that is my opinion and everyone is entitled to have one and we would love to hear some of yours.
