VW Ad Controversy

Volkswagen leaked one of their Superbowl commercials feauturing some men talking with a Jamaican accent because they are so happy in their VW.

The first time I saw the ad I laughed out loud.  I thought it was genius! 

I couldn't believe when there was all this drama suggesting that the commercial was racist.

As a proud Jamaican I can say that I am not even slightly offended by the ad.  If anything, I am honored that my little island has such a large reach in terms of our culture that we would make a Superbowl ad.

Not one Jamaican person have I heard suggest that they are offended by the ad.

I swear sometimes we take ourselves too seriously.

Lighten up and learn to laugh and have fun - that truly is the Jamaican way.
