    The rap artist was attempting to be outrageous. This is not too different than Jello Biafra's song "Peeling Back the Foreskin of Liberty", in which he portrays a right wing Southerner stereotype. In the case of the Mountain Dew commercial, this stereotype failed miserably, because people took the stereotyping too literally.

    I agree, like i said in the OP, even if someones initial reaction was that of racism, once you find out the writer is black and him and his music group are the stars of the commercial a normal brain should quickly tell you that the racism factor is -0 LOL

    now people are free to feel that its a ****TY commercial but that doesnt make it racist.

    i think it portrays a certain segment of urban blacks pretty accurately...people pay money to look like that...and practice talking like that...
    it goes really weird when whites and aisens try to look like these guys...

    i think those low riding weird pants were invented so that thieves can't run in them...sort of like shooting themselves in the foot wearing them...i think white law makers got them into the fashion of the urban black gheto people

    should the race of the person producing it really even be in question?

    Obviously this was intended to be part of a serial within the ad campaign to get people trying to figure out how it went from commercial 2 to commercial 1. It might be quite funny and innocent, but we might not ever find out now. I think if anything political it plays off a cop trying to frame black folks as opposed to making black folks look bad.

    Either way, you can still make Mountain Dew Glow in the Dark

    Re: Mountain Dew Under Fire for 'Most Racist Commercial in History

    I thought it was funny. I don't see the connection to how it would make me want to buy Mountain Dew though? As far as racist? Don't know it seems to show the black guys being innocent and the goat being guilty. Although the police officer seems to be pushing the lady to pick one of the men with the dew rag. That seems to fall in line with the ideal that a lot of blacks do not trust the police.

    I think this would appeal more to the people who know Tyler the Creator and his work. I believe he is the producer of a show called Loiter Squad on Adult Swim. If you ever see that show you will realize the imagination this guy has. It's not for everyone that's for sure. They hang out with the crew from Jackass if that tells you anything.
