Of course it's racist...everyone knows what "Mondays" is a code word for.

Everybody that I showed it to, or told about it, was so damned proud that Jamaica (aka Jamrock) was once again being recognized for our contribution to popular culture - sheesh - we need some more folks like VW (I know, eh? I couldn't resist slipping that one in).

I know we haven't got everything right, but I'd go out on a limb and say we've pretty much nailed it with our music... and one Mr. Usain Bolt!!

That said - did you all see the teaser for this ad - featuring none other than the living legend himself Jimmy Cliff


Jimmy became famous with this song and being cast as the lead actor in the movie of the same name.

And cemented it when the Boss covered one of his earliest songs - and a wicked cover it was too!

One Love

ETA - just saw this...The story made it to the banner of the front page of our leading daily newspaper.
http://www.jamaicaobserver.com/enter...rs-VW-campaign

Yes, everyone here on the rock is very proud...and No, the fact that the owners of the newspaper also own the VW dealership here doesn't diminish our overwhelming pride.

Thank you for your insight sir.

It's a crying shame when people seem happy and need an outsider with ulterior motives, to tell them how they really feel.

Apparently the "racist" comment is determined to be necessary by the complainer, because he/she believes the Jamaicans are incapable of knowing when they have been offended.

Is it any worse than:

"Red Stripe - helping white people dance since [I don't remember when]"?

I liked the suicide bomber ad myself but it was considered racist as well.

I bet VW planted the complaint - they're getting worldwide press from this *for free*, they can pocket the $4,000,000 they were going to spend running it on game day and appear to be a culturally sensitive company by bowing to the complaint of the "whiner".

Pretty damn crafty.

Jamaican is not a race, therefore it cannot be racist.

Jamaicans think they are their own unique race. I know a Jamaican quite well. Jamaicans agree that the Catholic church was wrong when it said the earth was the center of the universe and that the sun rotates around the earth.

JAMAICA is the center of the universe. The rest of earth is merely there as a distraction for them.

I heard Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton were very upset by the ad, they couldn't figure out an angle to milk VW for a payoff check.
