Meanwhile, the Kmart "I can ship my pants" commercial is hilarious.

The Mountain Dew ad was in poor taste, racist, and should of never made it out of the board room. Now the KMart ad is pure comedy gold, I practically watched that commercial on loop and laughing so hard.

"I just shipped my drawers."

I don't see anything wrong with either. I see people working and getting paid and how is that a bad thing. They're making people laugh in the process.

I really don't understand the problem with the Kmart commercial. Must be over my head.

There is nothing wrong with the KMart commercial, it is the Mountain Dew commercial that people have a problem with.

Don't know if Obama is racist or not but blacks can't be racist? Reverend Wright comes to mind and he was Obama's pastor for 20 years.

We live in today's world, and in today's world the ad is racist. There needs to be a couple of goofy white guys in the police line-up, then it becomes okay. This coming from the same guy who rolled his eyes when an NAACP branch whined about the racist "black holes" audio graduation card Hallmark was selling a couple of years ago. As for "shipping my pants"; no stereotypes there. It's a play on words. It does not target a demographic.

I really never even noticed it until the news media made a big deal out of it, I didn't even think it was funny.
