I'm still trying to decide whether this is a joke. Because if it is it's pretty funny.And if it's not: twice as funny.
What?!This ad is fantastic! It's a perfect satire of race-sensitivity. I love their stating faux-seriously that certain pieces of furniture can be enjoyed by both white and black people.Plus, the fact that we are discussing it at all is proof that they created a great ad.
If you read the MSNBC story about it, it's pretty clear that they weren't serious, but they are a real store. I can't/won't find the link, though.
I definitely see your point, and it also got people talking...I just can't shake the redneck-awful production values. I mean, these guys are worse actors than current-day William Shatner.
Hey, we just talked about this over at ye olde Provonian. Taliatha put a link to "making of" video in the comments section. Look for Jed's post about his movie.I think this would actually go over pretty well in NC--a state that is great for black people . . . and white people.
Scott, I think you live there too...what's your thoughts on this store for black people...and white people?
