    I love how people get offended over race and if that race isn’t offended it’s okay all the PC snowflakes will get offended FOR YOU. The dove commercial was completely fine

    The Nationwide one was actually my favorite. So emotional and gut wrenching yet it puts out a simple message. That's what I like in a PSA. We don't get those in America anymore. Because people complain too much. But you see, reality is scary. Accidents and catastrophies do happen. We can't shelter ourselves from it forever. It's just inevitable.

    If my umbilical cord was still attached to my mom when she eats skittles, I would want her to give me a lime skittle for me to taste inside my stomach when its transfer to my mom and my umbilical cord but never she should never eat green apple skittles because that flavor is so gross it doesn't belong in Original Skittles package at all but you can get lime skittles in the Darkside Skittles package to get your lime flavor in them.

    The dove one isn’t racist, they’re using a commonly used transition

  • what the heck am I doing here

    I think the dove and was nice because even your Black, White or any color of your skin, your skin always be very smooth and plus you have confident that you can shine no matter what you made of.

    People who complain about the Dove ad really need to pull their heads out of their asses. After the black woman "becomes" white, the white woman "becomes" Latina. Seriously, why do SJWs cry about every fucking thing they see?

    Honestly I vote to ban all Skittles commercials they're either sexual or just downright uncomfortable to watch I haven't seen one that didn't feel like a mini pornographic Acid trip

    That pepsi one didn't warrant all that outrage. Felt like people were projecting on that one. Couple of these were just the fact that the audience couldn't take a joke. Some just marketed to the audience and some was just weird. Very few offensive ones here

    I think that the real problem behind those commercials is that everyone gets offended by anything these days. ITS A JOKE, it doesn't mean anything.

    That trans commercial was genious. And not offensive in any way. Its a fact transgender people have to spend money to get the surgerys they neeed. Its not like they are making fun them... eveeryone just needs to be less biased when it comes to entertainment and take it with a grain of salt. Unless it really is obviously offensive.

    Who the hell thinks blm is a good thing? They riot, kill ppl, destroy their own neighborhoods. Over justified justice. The police aren't your neglective parents. They don't have to coddle you; their job is to enforce the law and protect themselves and the non- criminal community.

    with the dove advert, i feel it would’ve been taken differently if it were an ad for like, tees from target. unfortunately, soap ads have had racist campaigns from the beginning which is prolly why people were too quick to judge the dove one.

    So transgenders have a problem with sexy transgenders? Or is the problem that she's played by a woman?! And that panda ad comes off like a Drawn Together joke. "Only black suspects" - what about the white guy right at the moment you said it at 9:57? I'm rather wondering what the goat did to traumatize her.
