I have searched and searched, but I can't find this commercial on youtube or anywhere else. Next time it comes on, I'll try to shazam it, maybe that'll give it to me. But maybe someone here knows.

The new beer commercial (I'm sure it's for Bud lite), features 4 black guys, in a bar, watching a waitress bring a beer through the crowd. The commercial gets a major smh from me, because they're acting exactly like the Crows in Dumbo. The commercial sets black people back 75 year.

Probably should be featured on Tosh's "Is it racist?" segment.

^^ Miller Lite:



I don't see any racism, just four idiots gawking over a hot waitress on wheels (or is it the new bottle, which is the commercial's "punch line").   But since the characters are being portrayed as "idiots," I guess Miller should've taken the PC route and made it 4 white guys instead. Confused

Don't see any similarity to Dumbo, nor any racism.

Don't see how anyone could either...

See I get split on it sometimes. Part of me agrees with you.

But then I just see 4 black guys goin:

"I see it"
"I saw it!"
"Mmmmmmmhm"
"Yeaaaaah"

And I think:

Here's the question.

Can you see this same commercial being made with four wetbacks? four chinks? four terrorists? four crackers?

I only saw a remote similarity to Dumbo with the loudest guy, and that was only looking at it with the OP's suggestion in mind.

Was there a crow circleing above. The one dudes ears did protrude a little.
He could probably lick his eyebrows though so the ladies would give him a pass on that.

I think the rule is that black guys can be portrayed as idiots when there are no white guys present.  If there's a white guy present, the white guy has to be the buffoon.
 
They can also be portrayed as idiots when they're with their wives because, then, the stupid husband/smart wife meme wins out.
 
All other portrayals of black males as idiots (or even as the uninformed ones) are racist.

Is the Disney clip you referenced?  Probably pretty normal for that time.

I just saw this one for the first time. I think Miller Lite is pursuing the wrong demographic. The waitress should be bringing 4 Schlitz Malt Liquor 40 ounce bottles.
EEEEts All so REEEdEEEculous
