Asian American Commercial Watch: Gift Like You Mean It: Shiori

These days, there are a lot more Asian Americans on TV commercials, so it takes  more than having Asians American on a commercial to get me to want to share it.  This Holiday commercial for Etsy, produced by ad agency 72andSunny, struck me because it shows the experience that many Asian Americans have with getting their names mispronounced. Commenters on the video share how they had the same experience.  Despite the disadvantages of having a name that many Americans cannot pronounce, the girl and her family do not change her name to a Western name and instead celebrate it!  Thank you, 72andSunny and Etsy.

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