Somebody said the West Indian crowd was loud?
They should see an Oz cricket crowd.
The white guy is smarter because he's handing out deep fried ****?
What bull ****.
He's too dumb to know **** from food!
It's funny, because it took me forever to "get" that ad.
I don't watch cricket (which may be the key to all this....as it is presumably people who can't identify a cricketer who are offended), and for ages I had no idea what the awkward situation WAS.
Then, I finally noticed that the man handing out this awful "food" was white, and the rest of the crowd kind of darker.
I had no idea that the crowd was West Indian, and I still wondered what the hell the point was.
Then I wondered if it was supposed to be the colour difference....and I was utterly puzzled because that made no sense.
Then I figured they were watching sport, and the white guy must barrack for another team, perhaps? But why?
FINALLY I realized the white guy was an Oz one day cricketer, and that he was stuck in a big group of West Indies supporters!
I guess when you have no idea what is going on, you might see it as racist, if rqace is what your mind springs to....though I think it's kind of a stretch.
I am not surprised at all KFC have pulled it if it was being seen as racist on youtube or the gutter press. They don't want bad publicity, especially with the Colonel/Southern USA schmaltz they dress their lard up with.
It's kind of sad it's being seen as racist. Actually, it's very sad.
I guess it's another example of stuff having cultural baggage in the USA that it doesn't have here, and the arcane mysteries of cricket being almost unknown outside the Commonwealth!!!
