Here’s why that Coke ad was very smart. Because YOU will read articles about the ‘20 most racist responses to Coke’s superbowl ad!’ That ad is calculated to piss off the right people- the nationalistic, racist morons in this country- who will say something dumb about it on twitter. And then YOU will search that racism out, YOU will come to Coke’s defense and then you get to act offended, which is quickly replacing Baseball as our national pastime. It drapes itself in being all inclusive and world-lovin’, while knowing FULL WELL what the fallout will be. It’s not a bad strategy, and I completely agree with the ad’s take on America being an inclusive society (or at least, the IDEA that America is an inclusive society, reality falls short). But believe me when I say this- you reading that article on Jezebel or HuffPo tomorrow about what terrible idiots are on the internet are saying?…that’s the other half of the advertising campaign.Your outrage at the outrage is calculated in this.
I don’t really think it’s a bad move on Coke’s part- I like pissing off racists. But it’s a calculated move. Racists are going to drink Coke regardless, and the other people get to feel like they’re fighting racism by drinking Coke- Without actually doing anything. That’s the American way, right? Go sign an online petition, but forget to vote.
I’m a Diet Dr. Pepper guy, myself.
*Just checked- typing COKE into search on twitter shows ‘coke speak english’ as a hot search in the drop-down. That’s from people like YOU searching for it, not from people saying it.
Since 2011, Austin, TX based artist Tim Doyle has been working on a great ongoing series of illustrations inspired by pop culture.
