Granted, technology has made this 2010 spot obsolete, but never mind.

White people rapping continues to be, unfortunately, a very popular ad meme. I believe this is because white ad guys are about as white as white gets. So, they are always looking for ways to appear less white. Here is the only advertising instance ever of a white person doing hip-hop that I endorse.

I also endorse this spot because it actually assumes that you the consumer have a brain.

Ad agency: Publicis in Frankfurt.
