This is yet another interracial couple ad, but this one also uses the old "smart gal - dumb guy" theme.


The conundrum they must've faced on the possible ramifications of having to make one of them the smart one and one of them the dumb one probably drove them over the edge.

"If we make the black guy the smart one, women will be offended. 

If we make the white woman the smart one, blacks will be offended."

I can imagine the endless meetings and discussions they must've had

I guess that had something to do with the genteel things the black husband was saying he had planned for the afternoon.

Also, notice that the female is the driver. She's not just the smarter one, she's the one in control (while he dreams of pedicures and bubble baths and probably tiramisu).

She's the only one with good enough credit to get the deal done!

I see so many mixed couples these days,  I can't keep up with my obligations here on the forum.

I can't complain but sometimes I still do

Yeah, good catch. 

I've had tiramisu once.

It was so sweet I could barely finish it.

But given what I paid for it, I finished it, dammit!!!!! Sick

Alright!  I guess you don't need a good credit rating to sell your car.

But still! You smart people are talking above me!

Not intending to be racist here, but WHY are virtually ALL commercials today featuring inter-racial marriages and relationships. It's like two white people or two black people is the new minority.

I'll admit interracial couples are a more common sight than they were a decade ago, but it's still a lot more rare than commercials would have us believe.

It's obvious that it's more about presenting an image for the companies doing the advertising than it is about portraying reality or pushing a social agenda.

If/when it ever falls out of favor, you'll see it end overnight.

^ At least they could be more realistic, and stick with the more common interracial hookups---black men/white women, white men/Asian women.

Those are the ones I'm most familiar with.

Just wait till this fall when the Dukes of Hazzard reboot premieres. Just announced this morning. Daisy was originally Dave, though you'd be hard put to tell, even with her eponymous shorts. Luke has ancestry like Obama (no word on whether Boss Hogg demands to see the birth certificate). Bo and Uncle Jesse are the least changed, albeit fiercely protective of Daisy (who's feisty enough not to need protection). Bo and Luke spurn firearms not because of probation, but because "real men don't need guns" (not that vegans go hunting, anyway). The iconic '69 Charger is still there with only a couple of changes: an LGBT flag on the roof, and it's called the General Smith, named after the first openly LGBT general in the U.S. military (yes, a real person).

The Dukes still make moonshine on occasion, often to raise funds for pet causes, like David/Daisy's surgery. Boss Hogg and Sheriff Rosco are virtually identical to the originals (though Boss Hogg has a portrait of Donald Trump in his office). Their religion is not specified, but Boss Hogg often says, "I'd rather give up raw liver for Lent than [whatever.]"
Enos Strate is, well, straight, notwithstanding his crush on Daisy - he likes to tell her, "if God didn't want you to be a girl, He wouldn't have let you become one."

No confirmation on the cast, though the actor playing Daisy has the first name Chris. Whether that's Christine or Christopher isn't known.

What about a Dukes of Hazzard reboot?

Recasting the Dukes of Hazzard for a modern reboot. Hollywood is known for remaking remakes of films or tv series and the studios might think it would be great to bring the story back with a new set of characters.

Be it in the form of a Dukes of Hazzard reunion, a Dukes of Hazzard movie, or a Dukes of Hazzard reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?


well we can start with jake from state farm

The companies are terrified of being accused of being "racist". That's pretty much it. Also the advertising agencies they contract to make their commercials are PC to the max for the same reason.

But isn't everything we do now considered racist? My God, A person can't disagree or contest a statement uttered by another without it being dissected for racist undertones! Oh - I used the word God - how many did I just offend? LOL. I'm new here - oops!

To be honest, I didn't think these two were a couple! I thought the woman was the sales person while the guy was the buyer! I guess I will have to wait for the commercial to air again and pay more attention to see what I missed! Is it ok for a newbie to be a dumbass?

I'm confused. The woman gets back into the car with a check. Why? I though she just sold the very car they drove there in.

I suppose she just got back in the car to show off her superior skillz to her husband/boyfriend/domestic partner/whatever and afterward, they had to get out, collect their personal junk and walk home.
