Default Racist Mt Dew Commercial

Here's a link to it. Pepsi is taking these down as fast as they can. Is it really racist though since the director is black and it was the goat who was guilty?

Anyway, it's definitely a weird commercial and not even funny.

Of course it's racist ... if it was a lineup of all white biker gang dudes ... then it'd be ok.

I think one of the comments over there nails the way this has been misinterpreted. The entire point of the commercial is a satirical take on bias in the criminal justice system. Basically, the cops bring in 4 black guys who fit some stereotype and pressures the lady to pick one of them ("it's the one with the dew rag" while goat has no dew rag) when the goat is obviously the perp (why else bring a goat into the lineup?). I did find it a little funny, honestly, but I'm a sucker for talking goats.

Actually, the cop at one point says "its the one with four legs"

Tyler the Creator is an artist who makes his money by simply being purposefully offensive. The stuff he says is ridiculous and downright idiotic. Many people had a problem with this commercial also because it promotes violence towards women.

I'm not defending it as tasteful or even effective. I just don't think it makes sense to call it racist. Insensitive? Perhaps. But, everything is insensitive if the audience is so determined to be hypersensitive and read broad social significance into every artistic decision. For instance, those who say that this "promotes" violence toward women simply because one of the story details includes a female victim of violence. Most stories are going to feature something relatively tragic or undesirable in some way. It is simply an effective way to set up drama or humor. But, I hope we're all grown up enough to realize depiction isn't the same as promotion.

The guys who made this may be deliberate offensive people, and I suppose that matters, but I still think we should dial down the manufactured outrage every time some piece of art doesn't perfectly reflect our ideal social conditions. Especially when there are obvious satirical intentions.

Actually, I believe it's a play on words when he said "the one wearing the DEW rag" ... and the goat is wearing clothing, so he could be wearing a DEW rag around his neck.

It's a funny commercial that some people have to ruin because they think it attacks them. Again, if it was a line up of all white redneck biker gang looking guys ... NOBODY would say the first word.

It's not racist ...

My son and his friends are listening to Tyler the Creator. You have nailed it when you state he is just trying to be offensive. I told them being profane simply because you can be is the opposite of creative. What a waste of digital space!

thought it could be racially offensive but not racist. it was offensive to domestic violence victims. could see it being racist to someone because there were no white guys in the lineup and there are definitely a lot of white domestic violence perps out there. but im sorry i thought it was funny. what ad agency hired this guy they knew he is offensive.

It's Odd Future.

I dislike it because of the way it glorifies violence against women and the culture of violence. It has nothing to do with race.

See...this is why I keep my talking goat on the back of my pick up truck...and if I ever had any indication that he got down off the truck and beat up a woman or even went to the carnival to ride the loop-de-loop, I would tell the goat to put up its dukes....
