    I think I get what RAC was trying to do in this spot, make sure that something other than white people are represented on television, but am I the only one that thinks they could have chosen a better spot to do it in than this one?

    Just seems like the message might be seen as “some black people are so broke, they gotta rent babies”. I know it’s wrong, but I didn’t create the commercial, I just saw this and said “wow, that’s something they’ll probably catch shit about at some point”.

    Anyway, thought it was wrong and funny and might get them into some media trouble. Maybe I’m just the only asshole that thought of it.

    Heh. If that was an ad based on NZ stereotypes it’d have a Chinese dude behind the wheel.

    Are the black babies cheaper to rent or someshit?
