So if someone carved a peace sign into the hood of your car you'd be cool with it?

I usually won't click on a Breitbart link, but this morning I haven't had my coffee and accidentally clicked without looking/thinking.  But alas, my work computer blocked the site:

This guy really thinks ad agencies put some kind of political agenda behind their ads. They come up with "cool" concepts and the company executives pick one and a commercial is made, it's just about making money selling commercials, not some commie-lib-plot.
 
2013-02-06 10:02:20 AM
The moment I saw that ad I knew someone, somewhere was going to lose their shiat over Coke "promoting graffiti." Should have known it would be someone at Breitbart.

They didn't like the ad that celebrated a graffiti artist spray painting the word "Peace" on a storefront. I'll click on the link four or five times for you though.

FTFA: Criminality, so long as it carries meaningless lefty sloganeering, is endearing to the admakers.

Written by Ben Shapiro, a fellow at the Freedom Center. Perhaps he'd like to explain to us exactly why the word "freedom" shouldn't also qualify as meaningless sloganeering.

Yeah, that wasn't Coke's fault. If the 49ers had been just a little more aggressive in the first half, the Ravens never would have won.

I remember joking when this came on that spray-painting peace was still vandalism. I was just joking though. This is truly absurd but consider the source.

No, but if someone created a fictional advertisement where an actor carved a peace sign on the hood of a prop vehicle which was provided to the set for that explicit purpose, I certainly wouldn't get my nose out of joint.

Someone ought to show this guy the famous Apple commercial of the chick throwing a hammer through a giant television screen. Rebelling against big brother but destroying property at the same time. The cognitive dissonance might make his head explode.

This is not peaceful. It is defacement of property, unless for some bizarre reason the person was spray-painting his or her own property. Criminality, so long as it carries meaningless lefty sloganeering, is endearing to the admakers. And to Coke, apparently.

I have this mental image in my head: in a semi-darkened room, somewhere in the bowels of large, decaying house....is a room piled high with old newspapers and plates covered with the fuzzy remnants of meals long gone.  there are unwashed socks strewn about the floor, splayed out like the entrails of an animal sacrifice gone wrong.  the room smells of unwashed geek and the slight ozone of computer monitors pushing their limits.  seated in front of that screen is a shapeless blob, frantically typing on an encrusted keyboard.  sweaty and slightly panting, the figure moves in swift, jerking movements....clicking their mouse, images fly by...and anger increases.  libruls...libruls EVERYWHERE!  cut/paste, type and type some more, upload and hit SEND!  it's all he can do...but he HAS to do it, he's compelled....if not him, then who else?

Does every Deadbart comments field have to mention Alinsky by law or does it just seem to work out that way?

A lot of the comments seem to be "I'm offended by the Coke ad glorifying people who spray paint graffitti on stuff so to show them how bad I think that is I think everyone should go out and vandalize a Coke truck with a screwdriver".

And they wonder why they're not taken more seriously.

you're right, you should form up a posse to hunt down and MURDER those graffiti people!  They are THE ENEMY!  WADE into them!  shoot THEM in the belly!  when you put your hand...into a bunch of goo that a moment before was your best friends face.....well, then you'll know what to do.

Here's a fun game. Go to this link of the top-rated super bowl commercials since 1989 and apply your idiotic reasoning to all of them.

Here I'll get you started -

2009: So you'd be ok with someone smashing your office vending machine for doritos?
2012: So you'd be ok with someone killing your cat, as long as they gave you doritos?
2010: So you'd be ok with someone tackling your grandma?
2006: So you'd be ok with someone stealing your beer?
2004: So you'd be ok with someone's dog biting your crotch?
2007: So you'd be ok with worshiping a false crab deity?
1997: So you'd be ok with bears roaming city streets?

You get the idea. Stop being silly.

The author's issue isn't that the Coke ad was promoting peace, but that Coke apparently thought promoting peace through defacing someone else's property would be a good depiction of someone setting the right example.  It's not a good example.   Unless the store front owner or the community stands by that young man's work, what he's doing is ultimately a destructive act.
 
2013-02-06 10:37:11 AM
It was 3 seconds of a 30 second commercial. How do they know it wasn't a patriotic small business owner decorating his own storefront? I see businesses painting their windows all the time.
 
2013-02-06 10:37:19 AM
Yes please:  So you'd be okay with someone spray painting messages on the windows of your house, as long as they were nice messages?

Do you need it pointed out to you again that the commercial was fiction?  As in, nobody's property was actually damaged?  Or were you equally outraged by the other commercials which also ran, depicting activities such as driving above the speed limit, which would also have been illegal if they weren't fictional?

A destructive act? Seriously? Whats the estimated cost of cleaning that up? The costs of turpentine and a squeegee?

Wisconsin estimated the cost of removing painters tape at $7,500,000.

You know it was a commercial right? Nobody actually vandalized anything, you know. And just because I (or anyone else) don't get myself up into a tizzy because they used that imagery in their commercial doesn't mean I support or encourage such acts happening in real life.

Remember the horse ad where the guy was laying in the stable with the horse? Budweiser was obviously promoting man-horse beastiality love there, they pay so much for these commercials every frame is thought out to promote their agenda. And if you don't agree with me, you support beastiality.

no, the author is a whiny biatch who can't stand even a FICTIONAL representation of rebellion against authority, as was portrayed in this 30 sec ad spot.  'OMG GRAFFITI!  MURDER/DEATH/KILL!'

I think the guy who wrote this article is desperately in need of a blow job.

Exactly.  Did it ever dawn on the author that the footage might have been staged, thus perfectly legal?   While I guess I can object to the concept of promoting vandalism; I think the biggest issue with the comercial as far as the author of this article goes, is that it promotes the positives in humanity rather than perpetuating fear.  Perpetual fear based on abstract "boogeymenn" is what drives the right wing money-machine.   Any concepts like "peace" and "love" are threats to that income source.  It is basically the same concept they "project" on scientists regarding funding when it comes to research they disagree with.

Wasn't that "graffiti" a large mural?  Which would take hours to paint and therefore are almost always commissioned by the storefront owner...

That's true, though, it's not really hard to set off right wing blow hards... Hell, just telling them I'm from Massachusetts and belong to a Teacher's Union is usually more than enough.

No real need to patronize their shiatty websites, from what I can tell.

Every commercial you see "glorifies" cameras everywhere. Why, they film people doing stuff!!!

I did find their "peaceful warriors" image a bit strange but wow that article was a big pile of poopie.

Labor and money to get the paint thinners, goggles, rubber gloves, breathing masks, cleaning rags, possibly a step ladder, etc. as required.  You'll also need to tape off the areas that you don't want the paint thinner to drip on and possibly stain. Then there's the actual labor to remove to paint itself. Then you have to properly dispose of everything that the paint thinner touched so that you don't risk a fire by throwing it away in a trash can. Then you have to properly store the remaining paint thinner in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from sources of ignition, pets, and children.  And this all assumes that it was painted on glass, one of the easiest surfaces to clean.  God help you if it was brick.

You realize this is a Coke ad, not a documentary, right? It's not real.

And just to spare you any further worry... M&Ms don't really talk!
