Bad Ads - L'oreal

Is this seriously being marketed in 2014?

A new mascara that allows white girls to shout "hey, look at me, I'm Japanese!"

Cultural appropriation as a marketing tool.

Just awful. Offensive and insulting.

Pretty much straight-up racist.

Bad Ads - Disney

Fair warning, do not watch this video if you are easily appalled.

This is pretty much everything horrible about American culture in the late 20th Century. For some reason dragged into the 21st.

The Wayfarer shades pushed down the bridge of the nose, al Risky Business.


The popped collars.

The lame-o white-guy rapping.

The phrase "it rocks."

Iconic children's characters trying to act "cool" with sunglasses and a faux-ZZ-Top "Sharp Dressed Man" put-on.

Just horrible. If I didn't already hate Disney, this would've sealed it.

I just hope everyone involved in this debacle dies a slow, horrible death.
