Sean Paul and the Guys Who Do the "Cops" Theme Song Don't Think Volkswagen's Super Bowl Ad is Racist
Volkswagen claims it got the okay from 100 Jamaicans for its supposedly racist Super Bowl commercial. And now, a few more Jamaicans are giving their support. Singer SEAN PAUL sees the ad as, "just entertainment", adding, "to me it's no different than the Italian accents in 'The Sopranos' or the English accent in Guy Ritchie's movies."
The guys from the group INNER CIRCLE agree. They're the ones who sing "Bad Boys", a.k.a. the "Cops" theme. They said, "Duplication is the highest form of flattery, and our culture is a happy culture with good vibes."
(There's also some minor controversy over Coca Cola's ad, because it features an Arab guy on a camel in the desert. But apparently, the people who criticized it jumped the gun. This one doesn't sound like it's going to blow up. You can read more about that non-controversy, and see the ad, here.)
