Yup, it’s real. Thailand is notorious for having insane, disturbing or offensive ads like this. Copyranter tracks them, which is where I first saw this, and this one is actually pretty nice by comparison. Here’s a more typical (read: very creepy) example.
Wow. That was incredibly offensive to me. I suppose that sort of thing flies in a mostly homogeneous society where there aren’t any black people around, but then the question becomes: where the hell do they get their ideas about black people from?
Damn!!!!!!!!! That is f-ed up.
What did that even mean? And why does he come home to sleep on a toothbrush?? One minute lost on foolishness.
Alas, it’s more than Thailand with this kind of stuff. There’s a popular brand of toothpaste (again! who knows why…) called Darlie in Taiwan that basically has Al Jolson in blackface on the logo.
Yeah, racism is a huge problem here in Thailand. What makes it worse is the fact that a lot of people are oblivious to it. They wouldn’t think twice about ads like this.
This CNN Go article nails it, while the comments paint an even more thorough picture.
That Confederate Family commercial is not real. That was a scene from a satiric movie about what would have happened if the South won the Civil War.
