Controversial VW Ad: Is This Racist?

by at . Comments

Volkswagen just wants you to Get Happy.

That was the tagline the company debuted last night during Super Bowl XLVII.

But one VW Super Bowl commercial is having the opposite affect on some viewers, who view it as racist because a white man is speaking in a Jamaican accent.

What do you think, THGers? Does the company cross a line? Is this disrespectful? Culturally Insensitive? Is the ad racist?
