Asian American Commercial Watch: Radio Shack

Radio Shack just launched this inexplicable commercial titled “Sensei” promoting the fact that they carry cell phones from three different wireless carriers: AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint. All the elements of an annoying commercial for Asian Americans – a stereotypical screaming kung fu master. I’m trying to figure out which commercial is more annoying – this one or this Six Flags commercial… Actually, no, I think this KFC commercial annoys me the most. At least when Palm launched the Pre, Palm demonstrated that you could command an army of Asian dancersthat would make me buy a phone.

Thanks for rating this! Now tell the world how you feel - .

About John

I'm a Taiwanese-American and was born & raised in Western Massachusetts, went to college in upstate New York, worked in Connecticut, went to grad school in North Carolina and then moved out to the Bay Area in 1999 and have been living here ever since - love the weather and almost everything about the area (except the high cost of housing...)
