Is This Volkswagen Super Bowl Ad Racist?

The Super Bowl ad that Volkswagen plans to run is being called racist by some, because it’s about how driving a VW Beetle makes you so happy that you talk in a thick Jamaican accent.
Volkswagen says it consulted 100 Jamaicans before releasing the ad, and used a speech coach to get the accent right. But the company has other ads to run in its place if this one causes too much controversy.
I watched the video five times and I couldn’t find a trace of racism. If you can, there’s a stick in your rear that needs removed.
