The ad features a white man, who starts speaking with a Jamaican accent because he is so happy with his new car
Volkswagen is getting hit over its newly-released Super Bowl commercial, with critics saying that the ad is racist.
The ad, which debuted on Monday, features a white man who is overjoyed by his Volkswagen. He is the only happy person in his office on a Monday and tries to cheer up his fellow co-workers — while speaking in a Jamaican accent, which he has apparently picked up due to the overwhelmingly joy-inducing power of the car.
