What Does Andrew Bogut Think About This Controversial NBL Ad?
The NBL (Australia) is under some heat after releasing this commercial featuring some of the leagues biggest stars (can’t call them that anywhere else) balling in the home’s of various squares, destroying all of their property.
The controversy arises towards the end of the promo, when a black player jumps into bed with a white couple, and stares just a little too hard at the (decent) white chick. The black dude appears to be thirsty for the white chick like Kenyan marathon runner is thirsty for some water on Mile 25.
It may be subtle, but it does create room for some to view the ad as racist. Perhaps the producers of the commercial should have used a white guy jumping into bed with a black couple, but hindsight is 20/20.
