    Someone overanalyzing SB commercials again

    Arab-American Groups Calling Coca-Cola Super Bowl Ad Racist (Video) | Super Bowl | NESN.com

    What do you see? I see the guy trying to race but something getting in his way of success just like every other group in the commercial.

    Come on people, do we have to see racism, sexism, ageism or whatever other -ism everywhere we look?

    I'd just say camels are slower than buses, horses, and Mad Max vehicles.

    That's a pretty funny commercial. The other day I saw on Yahoo that some group claimed the Kate Upton Mercedes commercial was too tacky/sexy. The commercial they showed needless to say was not at all what I expected.

    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    Re: Someone overanalyzing SB commercials again

    Funny commercial, I think the problem is that there is an on-line poll asking people to vote for the winner of the race, and the so-called Arab isn't listed. But I see nothing wrong with the commercial.

    Re: Someone overanalyzing SB commercials again

    That's so awful. They should have all ended in a tie so everyone wins.

    Either that or have the camel dude mount a comeback and at the end he could disable the girls' bus by tossing a bomb-laced backpack at it.

    Funniest part of the article is the muslim guy using the term Camel Jockey.

    Re: Someone overanalyzing SB commercials again

    As a time traveler from the future, I am outraged that the "Mad Max" guy is portrayed as such. In the coming dystopian landscape, we wear camouflage. The outfit he is wearing is more easily spotted by the machine overlords. THAT is the real injustice here.

    If these dumb reactions to SB commercials bump even ONE Ray Lewis story they are worth it!

    Some people are always looking for crusades and rtry to portray super sensitivity. Personally the machines should outrun the animals for 50 miles on the highway. Maybe Coke did not want to embarrass the camels.

    The Audi commercial set to run during the Stupid Bowl discriminates against nerdy guys with no prom date!

    The only thing I took from that commercial is that camels are stubborn, ****** waffles who never do what you want them to.

    They are in the desert you know and horses need more water than camels and those others may run out of gas so a camel may have the advantage after all - just sayin
