Asian American Commercial Watch: Metro PCS

I don’t know about you, but I find this Metro PCS television commercial pretty offensive. The ad — which debuted sometime around the Superbowl — plays to the stereotypes of Indians being techno-geeks in a mocking manner. I was almost wondering if this was some bad Saturday Night Live parody. Sure, there are a lot of Indians and Indian Americans working in tech, but the manner that they are portrayed in this commercial is ridiculous. CNet seems to agree.

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