The Anatomy Of An Ad Insulting Indians.

In Advertising, India on February 7, 2010 at 9:13 pm

One part accent mocking + One part call center jokes + One mention of a goat + One part kitsch Bollywood dancing + 2 parts garish costumes = 1 Superbowl MetroPCS commercial.

The one below is different from the Superbowl commercial in one respect – the goat milking is missing in this one.

  1. This commercial is clearly meant for humor, not at these guys, but with them. had this commercial featured white actors, it would have been same old/same old. Every one is always complaining that there is not enough diversity in ads. This ad is merely gives us, as the audience, another perspective. It is clearly not mocking all those on Indian decent. perhaps you should be a little more open-minded.
