Is This Commercial Offensive

Rich Stevens ShowThis is the new Volkswagen Super Bowl commercial…
The commercial is offensive to a lot of people…

In it, the central character, “Dave”, is a white guy from Minnesota, who speaks in a fake Jamaican accent to his perplexed coworkers…

The point of the commercial seems to be that riding in Volkswagen’s new car transports you to your “happy place,” in “Dave’s” case, that’s Jamaica…

But some people feel that a white man using that accent has racist overtones…

What do you think?
