Did you guys see these?

Commercial for high fructose corn syrup:



Before you get all excitable, some people already made a parody. Which is very badly done, but I suppose I "get" it.

But I like the underlying commentary on racial stereotypes. It's like, what, just cause I'm black I don't know what's good for my kids?

Or is it just because I'm serving them bright red sugar water that you question my interest in nutrition.

i think the ad would have been better if it had gone like this:

white lady: is that....high fructose corn syrup?
black lady: what are you, racist?
(uncomfortable silence)

Then maybe voiceover could be like, 'Get the facts straight, you bigoted morons' or similar
