Was I the only person offended by Pepsi ads in the Super Bowl yesterday?
Change the couple to white and have the jealous woman throwing her Pepsi can, hitting the black woman jogger and knocking her to the ground, Rev. Al and Bro. Jesse would be all over TV and radio today screaming "racism," not to mention the Feminazis screaming about abuse and football. By tomorrow, "Community Activists" like Obama would be boycotting and filing lawsuits against Pepsi for creating ads showing blacks being physically abused by, yet again, Whitey!
Pepsi, Fox and pro football have gone too far pandering to blacks and Obama.
Nope...I thought the same thing. In fact, the doritos commercial with the dorky white guy sucking on the black dude’s finger was a new low.
I said the same thing to my wife when I saw it. It would have been a hate crime by the race baiters.
Thankfully, I missed that commercial.
Why must everyone look for things to be offended by? Why must everything be seen in political terms?
I fight against political correctness anywhere I see it, and this is political correctness from a conservative angle.
It was a joke. We used to be able to make jokes in this country.
And if you didn’t like a joke, you could say “Hey, I don’t think that was funny.”
You didn’t have to find a reason to justify your dislike.
Not everything has to do with politics.
Thankfully, I prefer Coke but Pepsico owns lots of other companies and they need to learn that pc can and does work both ways.
I'm mad as Hell and don't intend to take this anymore, especially when it ruins football.
Add to that, the Pepsi commercial where a black couple (man and woman) were sitting on a park bench next to a white girl. The black guy threw the can at his girlfriend, who ducked, and the white girl got hit in the face.
Did they apologize? Hell no . . . they looked around . . . and ran! New low for a corporate brand.
I thought nearly all of the ads were terrible...but the Dorito finger sucker and the female jogger getting clocked by the jealous wife were over the top. Can you imagine the outcry if the colors were reversed????
Even the Budweiser commercial was disappointing. About the only one I could tolerate was for the Black Beetle (for VW) and that only due to the music...Ohh ohh Black Betty bamalam. oops, Can we even say that anymore??
So many ads reflect such “low” humor. I’m so sick of seeing men being hit in the crotch — which has been a big “gag” for years now. The one you mentioned surprised me and I did groan — but is immemorable as far as message (I had already forgotten what the ad was sponsoring).
I liked the “Tiny Dancer” singing bad a$$ one the best.
I wish you success; and hope you share Pepsi's reply with everyone here at FR. Reverse the color; and Sharpton would be screaming into every microphone he could find right now...where is NOW, by the way?
it was the woman that threw the can that hit the other...
lighten up and drink coke.
Yea a new low on memoriable Commercial. The VW Force to me was the best.
Who cares what Moochie “wide load” obama thinks...she’s as ignorant as dirt.
ALL of the ads were pathetic.
Although the Bud Light ad of the Product placement ads in Movies was pretty good.
I think they topped the reality of Steve Spielbergs grotesque use of product pimping.
Guess I need to read the thread before I post...
All the Pepsi ads were violent. Granted the “cartoon-type” violence, but still vindictive and mean.
I hated the one where the obnoxious guy gets a cold can rocketed into his crotch with painful results. For the past 10 years or more the ‘kicked in the crotch’ scenario has been hailed as the apex of comedy gold in this culture for some reason. It’s vulgar and distasteful. Why do you guys think it’s funny? Because it’s not you? As a gal, I’m puzzled.
I would recommend Pepsi return to an older or original logo and hope I forget the incestual relationship they have with Obama regime.
Apparently you weren’t the only person offended by it, which means that you aren’t alone in having a serious need to lighten up. It was a funny ad.
what on earth was it .
white guy who seemed to be a queer sucking a black mans finger. WTH.
If we had a free and fair press then they would point out how MO is a hypocrite, she’s got a massive arse, eats burgers, fries and ice cream and then tell su not to and now wants our portions made smaller
