Way off topic, but just want to make sure I'm not crazy...
So I was on Facebook and an add popped up for something I was mildly interested in (won't name the company but it was just a basket that goes on the back of a jetski). I clicked on the link and there was a video showing the product in action. The music was a rap song, no big deal, but about 10 seconds into the song it was all N-word this and N-word that. I turned it off after about 20 seconds. I was shocked that any company would use a song like that to advertise their product. I contacted the company to let them know...maybe it was a mistake or something. I kind of expected them to say "OMG, we are sorry, that was a video a customer made that wasn't supposed to be on our page"...or something along those lines. What I got back was "We don't know why a song would influence you decision to purchase our product". Then another person chimed in saying "I'm sure they don't need disgruntled customers like you".
Just had to vent a little. I can't believe any company would use a song like that in their official advertising....and then defend using it. Am I that old fashioned to be offended by this?
