Asian American Commercial Watch: Toyota Time – Spelling Bee

The theme of “Indian kids as spelling bee champions” seems to have a higher profile lately, especially with the recent movie Bad WordsThis Toyota commercial includes an Indian kid showing off his spelling talents.  The father is apparently played by a Hispanic guy (no data on the mom).  The family is ambiguously ethnic and can pass for Indian or Hispanic.  I wonder if we will see more of that kind of casting, where Hispanics can play Indians and vice versa.
