Watch The Pulled Volkswagen Super Bowl Ad Here- Was It Racist?
Have you heard about the new Volkswagen Super Bowl Ad that got pulled? Apparently it has caused a world of controversy. Volkswagen previewed their ad online this week, and a lot of people think it’s racist. The ad is called “Get Happy”. You can watch the pulled Volkswagen (some people spell it Volkswagon) Super Bowl ad here.
Here’s the deal on the ad: We find ourselves inside an officer where all the office workers are miserable except “Dave”. Dave is a white guy from Minnesota who’s so cheery that he speaks in a Jamaican accent. Why? Because he drives a VW Beetle.
Volkswagen thinks the ad isn’t racist because they tested it with over 100 Jamaicans. These Jamaican’s didn’t think it was racist. Do you?
