Purolator gently mocks Japanese, Mennonites.

(via) Second spot below with an Amish man. "God would know." The third spot features a mentally-retarded Arab. No, actually it's a "granny." I know, I'm being too sensitive and just faux shit-stirring. Ad agency: Grey NYC.

I like these, and appreciate that they used a geisha where other commercials would just use an average woman.

Yep. That's what you want to do these days. Make fun of Japanese people. Nothing raises the spirit more than a good ball busting.

Panetta, I'm a woman and I don't need to lighten up. That's not a white woman pretending to be a geisha for the purpose of mocking asian people, and therefore nothing at all like black face. Nothing you say is accurate.
