Parov Stelar Ad Pulled2013-05-01 by Shimana | 13 Comments
|General Motors had to pull an advertisement for their Chevrolet Trax car because of complaints that the song being featured in the ad, Booty Swing by Parov Stelar, was racist. Part of the lyrics that could be heard in the ad are as follows:|
Now, in the land of Fu Manchu,
The girls all now do the Suzie-Q,
Clap their hands in the centre of the floor
Saying 'ching-ching, chop suey, swing some more'

Oh well, Parov Stelar is still one of my favorite musicians so like whatevs
Aren't we all getting a little too sensitive?
I've always loved this song. Never thought twice on the
lyrics. Big whoop. People are overly sensitive these
Parov Stelar is fucking awesome what the fuck
Those are some of the greatest lyrics I have ever heard.
Def getting inked with this hot verse
I've always loved this song. Never thought twice on the lyrics. Big whoop. People are overly sensitive these days.
From the mouth of @PrezBillyJeff, a man who has felt the harsh rain of over-sensitivity beating down on him.
Happens to coincide with the Odd Future/Mountain Dew ads being pulled for "racism".
