Soooo I was on blackplanet today and ran across this Toyota ad which was a parody hip hop music and the use of the commonly used slang term " swagger".
I personally thought it was pretty funny, but a lot of people in the blackplanet forums were very offended by it and some even thought it was racist and an insult to hip hop music.
I guess it all depends on how you look at it. I acutually thought it was comical and a good departure from what Toyota has done in the past. My only concern is if a large enough group of black people DO find that parody offensive, Toyota may have just lost some potential customers.
