Oh No They Didn’t! Super Bowl Ads Try To Profit From Controversy

Groupon – “Save the Money Tibet” (2011)

Groupon thought it’d be funny to make a joke of the plight of a struggling country to sell discounts at ethnic restaurants. The CEO Andrew Mason later acknowledged, “As many of you have pointed out, if an ad requires an explanation, that means it didn’t work.”

    I am still ticked off at Pepsi for that commercial with the black couple and the white girl. I don’t even support Pepsi. Stereotyping black women as angry. I came to the conclusion for me is the best way to help stop it by not purchasing any products or don’t support anything that degrades blacks and especially black women in general.

    to answer the question about the carls jr commercials, their new commercial slogan is ” that’s just the way it is” so uhhh… that’s their response right there. they’ll have random bikini clad bony chicks in the commercials who don’t even know what a hamburger looks like, then they’ll say “that’s just the way it is”. how sad. those burgers are good! they don’t need naked chicks to sell it. kate upton looks like a a hamster to me btw
