OK, I am the type of person who doesn’t see people’s skin color. So when there was all this controversy over the Cheerios ad with an interracial child, I didn’t know there was a problem until I found out why a bunch of idiots were upset over it.
But, this ad for Qiaobi Detergent in China is blatantly racist. A Chinese woman is doing laundry when an African-American man covered in paint enters the room, she signals him over and then he tries to kiss her. Instead of putting her tongue in his mouth, she puts a pod in there and forces him into the washer. I was expecting him to come out dressed in a tux holding a dozens roses to give to her and I was horribly mistaken. Instead a Chinese man comes holding the pod.
Seriously? OMG! WTF? I am speechless because that is the most racist thing I have seen. How could anyone in their right mind approve that ad. Then you have to think that several people approved it. What the f*ck is wrong with people? That commercial needs to be burned and all the people responsible for it should never be allowed to work in any form of advertising again. Unless it is working on a street corner spinning a sign.
What do you think of this atrocious ad?
Are you prepared to be shocked? MC Hammer is afraid of hammers. That’s right, the man who goes by the tool and tells us to, “Stop, Hammer Time,” is scared of that H-Word. Why is he so terrified of the piece of wood with a metal top? He told The Huffington Post, “You can hit your fingers. So I try my best to not have to hammer too many things.” That makes sense, sort of?
I guess he is 2 Legit 2 Quit a lot things, but his horrifying name is not one of them.
Granted this could all be a lie because he is promoting Command™ Brand from 3M, a hammer alternative. What do you think?

If you have been on social media recently, then you have seen the hashtag #FeelTheBern for Democratic Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders. Well, you weren’t alone because the AIDS Healthcare Foundation saw it too and that gave them an idea. They came up with a new brilliant billboard campaign for STD testing awareness and used the slogan “Feel the burn?” Gonorrhea and Chlamydia are on the rise and Jason Farmer, Senior Director of Creative at AIDS Healthcare Foundation feels that, “Senator Sanders’ powerful message resonates with a lot of Americans, particularly young people. We hope that our lighthearted—but highly important—billboard campaign for STD testing will as well.”
So if you feel the burn, then you can get tested for free at one of their Wellness Centers. If you are feeling the burn and go to get tested, when you are done buy some condoms and use them whenever you are having sex.
Remember around Halloween time, Burger King sold a Whopper with black buns that turned your poop green? Well, on March 31st they have a new flame broiled sandwich that will flame your mouth going in and then the lower mouth on the way out. That’s because the Angriest Whopper has hot sauce baked into the bun and in between its stuffed with thick-cut bacon, American cheese, iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, angry onion petals, jalapeños, creamy mayonnaise and spicy angry sauce . I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to try it. As much as I love on it on Thursday, I am going to hate it on Friday!
When I think of hot dogs, I don’t think of Charo but for some reason Burger King did. That is why they asked her to be in their commercial to promote their newest food item. Which no one understand why the burger joint is selling them.
Anyways, I would love to say this ad made me Cuchi-Cuchi, but I can’t. She is so much better than this.
But on a positive note, at least we have her television again and you can never get enough Charo. Can you?
If you have ever heard Steven Tyler sing, then you know that he can hit some really high notes. In fact, Skittles used his high notes to their advantage when they asked him to do a Super Bowl ad for them.
In the commercial they had someone make a painting of him using just Skittles. When the Aerosmith singer doesn’t like it, he convinces his Dorian Gray to sing his hit Dream On as high as possible. Why? So the picture will shatter into a million rainbow pieces.
Well, the advertisement was so effective that when ITV’s This Morning aired it, it actually cracked the camera’s screen.
If you would’ve told anyone that his octave is high enough to break glass, they would’ve said dream on. But it is. Which pretty gosh darn cool!

Did you know that tomatoes are an aphrodisiac? Well they are and Aldi Supermarkets in Australia used that fact for their advantage with this new commercial. They reworked the lyrics of Boyz II Men’s I’ll Make Love to You and had a man do stuff to the vegetable/fruit that is, well, just watch and you will understand why I can’t talk about it.
Back in the ’90s, Crystal Pepsi was thing for like a minute and for some reason Pepsi has decided to bring it back? I’ve never heard anyone say, “I would die for a Crystal Pepsi.” Have you? Plus, if I remember it was like disgusting.
So if you like the see-thru cola, go to PepsiPass.com to enter for a chance to win one of the 13,000 6-packs by the December 11th.
What’s next? McDLTs? Gigabits? Jolt Cola? Jell-O 123?
While most airlines only have videos about how not to die in plane crash, JetBlue has videos on how to get killed on a plane. Their flight safety videos are all about etiquette because let’s be honest, we’ve all had a horrible experience flying at some point. Like that neighbor who won’t shut up (which is me) or the person who eats smelly food and none of that compares to trying to board. Why is that so difficult? Well now we know how to avoid all of that or maybe not?
Either way, it reminds me why I only fly JetBlue. Well that, and they are the only nonstop from Burbank to NYC! And their free yummy snacks.
September 21st is Peace One Day and Burger King wants to make peace with McDonald’s for the day with the McWhopper. The bottom half will be the Whopper, the top is the Big Mac and I am drooing already. So McDonald’s accept this proposal because I must have this.
Granted, I could just go to McDonald’s and Burger King, buy a Big Mac and a Whopper and make one myself. But it won’t be the same or will it? I will let you know later today.
UPDATE: McDonald’s responded to Burger King and there is reason why their sales are declining. They suck and don’t get what a brilliant idea BK had with their appeal. If they did, they would’ve understood that this would’ve been great publicity for both fast food joints.
Dear Burger King,
Inspiration for a good cause… great idea.
We love the intention but think our two brands could do something bigger to make a difference.
We commit to raise awareness worldwide, perhaps youâ€™ll join us in a meaningful global effort?
And every day, let’s acknowledge that between us there is simply a friendly business competition and certainly not the unequaled circumstances of the real pain and suffering of war.
Weâ€™ll be in touch.
-Steve, McDonaldâ€™s CEO
P.S. A simple phone call will do next time.
