AT&T: Doughy White Guy Ruins Flash Mob For White Woman And Black Guy
This ad picks up where THIS one leaves off: yet another telecommunications company wants us thinking in terms of an Anti-White train station flash mob.
The white guy isn't hip enough to get the latest hi-tech gadget or service. Thus he never gets the message that the event has been postponed and ends up making a fool of himself.
How many of you think it's a casting accident that this ad contrasts this inept white guy with (of course!) a beautiful white woman and a black guy (:17 and :23)?
The black guy and white woman look upon the white guy with frustration mixed with pity. As if to say "You ruined our event - but what should we expect from a stupid white guy?"
Seeing as the black guy and white woman GOT THE MESSAGE that the mob had been postponed, the message of this ad is clear: interracial couples are hip, informed, and oh so 21st century. Meanwhile, white guys are walking self-humiliation machines.
"Funny" ads are so often only funny at the expense of white males. Why is that?
Boycott AT&T for thus threatening us with obsolescence, for pushing us towards their contrived, technologized-and-deracinated brand of survival of the "fittest."
