Just a week after Mountain Dew pulled an ad condemned by many as the “most racist commercial ever,” Uni Ball has released a commercial that actually gives that one a run for its money.
The ad features a muscular black male inmate reading a letter from one of his “homies” typed in Edwardian script and recited in a British accent.
The letter reads:
What up, homie. It’s wack that 5-0 bust you shifting bricks of da funky buddha. And I ain’t just spitting, yo. Everyday we be respecting wit a 40 on da floor for our peeps in lockdown. But word up, me and my homie T-Bone, we got a hood snitch up in the pen. We gon’ cut you loose like a noose, my dukes. And you be chillin’ in the crib knocking boots with some hoodrats. Gotta bounce, dawg.
