The Overreaction File – VW Superbowl Ad Is Not Racist

There is a controversy over this VW Superbowl commercial, with some making a big deal about it being racist. Their argument is that a white man taking on the Jamaican accent in this spot is cultural misappropriation. I say relax people. This is very much an overreaction. I think the spot is hilarious and personally find no offense. See for yourself.

By the way, the Jamaican tourism agency said they love the ad.
