Did anyone see this commercial before it was pulled?  I've been to several websites and it's gone on them, too.  From it's description it sounds pretty bad but hard to judge if you can actually watch it.
 
A new study finds that people who are chipper & happy live longer. Which is surprising because people who aren't chipper & happy want to kill people who are always chipper & happy. David Letterman

^^ There it is.  Alleged controversy aside, what the hell does the commercial have to do with Mountain Dew? Absolutely stupid f'ing commercial.

More stupid IMHO

It's racist because there's only black people that are criminals and the goat has an African American voice.

I'm glad that that ad was pulled, if it aired repeatedly, I would go ballistic! Especially with all that damn yelling!

Again, WTF does this crappy sh*t have to do with Mountain Dew? I can't believe I drank the stuff that this ghetto trash was promoting!

Maybe I'm misinformed, but if they were investigating a crime and the suspect was known to be an African-American, wouldn't they get all African Americans for their lineup? (goat aside)

Man, people are so quick to cry racist nowadays. I don't think this commercial is racist. Stupid, yes.
Racist, no.

That make sense!

That's what I was originally going to say, but I was afraid of being jumped on!

Technically, even if you couldn't identify their race, they'd STILL show people in groups of like.

Actually, this one pre-dates the other one, which I started a day later.
