Coca Cola and Pepsi weren't happy with the SodaStream ad that was to have run during the Super Bowl broadcast. And now it's gone, pulled.
Volkswagen seems to have fared better. Even our own Globe & Mail questioned whether the VW ad was perhaps racist. You judge.
VW got taken off the hook by pretty much everybody in Jamaica, including the Jamaican government. It pointed out something the racism crowd overlooked - Jamaica has plenty of Caucasians and Asians who speak with the very same Jamaican accent. Besides they like the ad because it makes them look happy and positive.
