GoodAaron That guy is really getting into singing "Jingle Bells" on a sweltering Texas road.
Hay Belly This is what happens when you give a negro a radio.
Bort I must have seen that commercial hundreds of times as a kid, and I never once recognized the song the energetic black man was singing as "Jingle Bells". I always just heard tuneless gibberish.
Even as a kid I felt this was an appalling stereotype. And the microphone / radio do absolutely nothing to enhance his activities.
Bort ... is that a time lapse? In the scene with the kids singing, the black kid is trying to take the Mr. Microphone from a white kid. Is that the same black kid years later, jivin' his way down the road, still singing "Jingle Bells"?
