Is This Halls Ad Racist?

And if it is racist, who is it racist against? Or is it just a realistic ad? A second ad in the campaign is DEFINITELY anti-Ohio.

If you follow running, you know that the top 10 million or so distance runners in the world are all Kenyans, and most of the top sprinters are black.

What ANY of that has to do with Halls cough drops is another matter you’ll have to take up with the goofy Argentinian creatives who concocted these ads—which are a looooong way out there away from the product benefit.

Anyway, the below ad shits all over ugly Ohio.

Ad agency: JWT Argentina.
