    And how can I possibly un-see it?

    Not sure whether to thank you for bringing this to people's attention or curse you for putting it in front of me.

    I was really having a hard time believing this was real until the links.  How a major corporation could possibly believe this shit is appropriate or profitable is beyond me.

    Frankly, the Humane Society and ASPCA should be all over them for dragging the poor innocent goat into this dreck.

      Not sure I could make a credible claim about animal abuse for that commercial. :)

      The bigotry, misogyny, and downright degradation, yeah, that's there.

      "a major corporation could possibly believe this shit is appropriate or profitable", as you say. If they're that stupid, they should definitely be boycotted.

      But I think it's very possible that Tyler released this without corporate approval. In which case Mountain Dew may very well sue his ass to kingdom come.

      Whatever the case, this type of thing can easily cost a company half their sales. Even racist companies aren't that stupid. I think.
