Parov Stelar Ad Pulled

2013-05-01 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'

The ad: http://youtu.be/0Ezwn02uvsY

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.
