1 MLK/Ram Superbowl Commercial... on 2/5/2018, 9:08 am

I thought it was in very bad taste to use a true American hero like MLK to sell trucks. Sad

Or... Is it okay now since we have what amounts to a carnival barker as potus?

What say ye braintrust?

(had to look that commercial up on the YouTube since I don't watch football)

I have no problem with it ... they're just reaching out to different market segments with advertising that might appeal to them.   Nothing disrespectful,  offensive, or particularly wrong about it that I saw.

Personally, I think this Dodge Ram commercial speaks to me a little better than the MLK one.   Or perhaps it's offensive to those with Northern European ancestry.  Should I be offended instead?   After all ... it does say nothing as to Scandinavians positive contributions to civilization, the arts, world peace, etc etc ... it just portrays them as vicious barbarians. And that's just off the top of my head ... give me a little bit & I bet I can find 20 things I could choose to feel offended about in that commercial.  Hey, now that I think about it that way ... maybe I should be offended? I mean, why not? Everybody else seems to be continually offended about something ... why not me?   Alright, dammit ... now I've gone & talked myself into being offended !!!   (see how that works?)

I wish MLK was still alive so we could buy matching Dodge Rams and go fishing together and haul shit around and whatnot.

I'd say, "Hey MLK I gotta chop some wood but my Dodge Ram may not be able to handle all the wood I chop" and MLK would be like, "Let me meet you down there by the wood chopping area with my matching Dodge Ram." We'd haul the wood then go fight for civil rights later that day.

Please sign my petition to redo Dr. King's funeral while replacing his mule-drawn wagon with a Robin Egg Blue Dodge Ram 1500.
