    I for one found the ad deeply offensive as I belong to the North American Wine Bottle Active Preservation Society (NAWBAPS)...and that senseless and cruel destruction of a fine wine bottle just sickened me to the core.

    At a loss at the connection to racism in the ad.

    I don't drink any alcohol beverages so I don't shop for them unless I'm getting something for guest.

    But I've noticed over the past year or so that "APPLE CIDERS" and "APPLE ALES" have been a trending product that is competing with the "GRAPE" (wines and related)" beverage industry.

    The video made a mockery of "WINE"...as it shows the guy drinking it grape stained teeth. Then the Apple Ale falls out of sky squashing the wine.

    So to me it was nothing more than competing products creating catchy ads like the "Chick Fil A" ad showing cows holding up a sign that says:

    Many of my tribe became cowboys. It was gold seekers that destroyed our nation

    That's a stereotype?

    Who knew?

    on edit: I see it's an ale, not a hard cider
    Quite honestly I don't sit around thinking about what blacks drink, it just doesn't cross my mind. Boy I guess I better get with the program, and know what's up.

    The only race on this planet is the human race.

    I didn't see anything racist in the ad.
