What about the "I Have A Dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the size of their pick-up truck" commercial?

I turned up the volume, and looked away.  I'll listen to MLK, but I'm not planning on buying a Dodge.

I thought the Verizon commercial with the first responders is brilliant.  It tugged at heart strings, while implanting the idea that Verizon's coverage is the best when it matters the most.  That's a pretty strong sales pitch.

How the hell did they think that was a good idea? Even racists knew Dodge was going to get hit with blowback.

I'm glad I'm not the only one completely offended by that commercial.  Sheesh... I generally dislike and avoid almost all advertising with technology nowadays... but "tone deaf" seems to be more and more of a thing lately in advertising.  But who the hell knows... everyone now is talking about Dodge/Ram... so... I guess anything goes?

Talking, but not all talk is good despite the old saw that there is no bad publicity. My wife and I have lists of what reasonably priced cars we would use to replace ours if we needed to- hers is 17, mine 14. Before last night a used Dodge Charger was on both lists, as they're pretty reliable, roomy and, around here, cheap.

Dodge, in fact Chrysler as a whole, just got scratched off.

I thought it was a Tide ad.

I thought the Budweiser commercial where their beer turns into water was a joke about their beer being watery.  I started laughing, and then it was explained to me how they sent shipments of actual water to people in need in disaster areas.  I started laughing harder, and I didn't say it, but I thought, well, why not just ship them their beer?

My in-laws once again think (correctly) that i am an asshole.

How about the other end of the scale? Presenting the most cost-effective, lowest-budget, best bang-for-the-buck Superb Owl commercial evar!

From 1999 (IIRC), could've been knocked out in minutes using a cheap desktop computer with cheap consumer-grade video-editing software even back then. No actors, either on-screen or voice. Production costs might've been no more than the cash currently in your wallet:

Ever notice how nobody disagrees with an opinion or political stance anymore?  Everyone is "offended" instead.

You can keep your Victim-by-proxy. I'll choose to point how tone-deaf Dodge was and then continue on with my own life.

I disagree with others' ideas, political stances, policy ideas, opinions all the time. I think I do so in an informed and kind manner.

 I was offended by using MLK's essence to sell a friggin' truck.  Two totally separate things.
