I thought the ad was funny but a little cheesy. The black actor in it looked as if he were enjoying his part. It was hardly racist!

It was totally racist. A dirty, black man get the black washed off him? The black actor was getting paid to look like he was enjoying his part--it's call "acting."

Cute girl, anyways . . . here is the video of this ad:

Was flabbergasted to see that ad. In this day and age, to have such blatant racism in an advert was rather surprising. And from the company's responses they are still missing the point. Typical business apology of : "we're sorry you got offended, but we didn't do anything wrong".

Guys, not only is the add blatantly racist, it's also a very poor imitation of the blatantly racist Italian original:

Even the music and sound effects are stolen. So, again, not only is it in incredibly poor taste, but is not even original to boot.
