They’ve been showing a Subway commercial pretty often here about some guy named Jared who “has inspired a lot of people”. They don’t say anything else, but one gathers he lost a lot of weight by walking a lot and eating low fat sandwiches. So far so good. I’ll ignore whether it is disingenuous to claim 6 grams of fat by ignoring most of the routinely used ingredients.
My question is this. Given the multicultural milieu found in North America, it is unusual to see a commercial that features lots of people without a token non-caucasian. This commercial focuses on four white guys “inspired” by Jared (presumably to lose weight) and then shows a crowd of fifteen or so white people heading to Subway.
Errr… my question? When was the last time you saw an ad like this? Under the assumption that manipulating ad-makers rarely do things by accident, don’t non-Whites eat very often at Subway? Can everyone sit on the subway in this day and age?
