View Full Version : Wal-Mart Commercial. What is it?

Wal-Mart just had a commercial where they showed a family on a road trip in a minivan. The mother was white, and the father was moderately invisible (as usual). When they panned into the back seat, two of the children were white and one was Asian.

What's going on? Vote in the upcoming poll and defend your conclusion.

Kevin, do you feel OK? I mean really?

I'll have to go with hitchhiker...then again, it wouldn't be too surprising to find out that the other two children were her half-siblings.

Oh. Half-siblings is a good concept. That should be in the poll.

I guess that they could have kidnapped the Asian girl, too.

I'm just worried about that little girl. Why is she in that car? Is there an amber alert on for her?

The Asian girl killed a white child and has taken her place unnoticed.

This is a work of marketing genious. Most people don't look that closely, so everyone sees a family that looks like theirs:

Traditional families sees two parents and two kids. "Yeah, this is like my family".

Single mom notices that the dad isn't featured and figure he'll bail out in a year or two any way. "This is just like my family."

Adults who grew up without their fathers don't even notice the father and think, "Wow, that is just like my family when we were growing up."

Oriental families see an oriental kid and figure the whole family is oriental. "That is just like my family"

Other non-caucasian families also see the oriental kid and are happy to see anybody but whitey on TV.

Families with kids from more more than one marriage see a family like theirs. "That is just like our family."

All other disfunctional groups of people living together (married people without kids, gays, lesbians, trannies, gangs of street orphans) see a non-traditional family and feel validated. "That is just like our family."

Fundamentalist Christians are thrilled to see the family travelled to China to adopt a club-footed baby, just like they did. "That is just like our family."

Rich white people see a mixed-race family and think "I'm glad people like that never show up at Nieman Marcus. I better write another check to the RNC"

Single people think, damn if I have kids, I'll have to shop at Wal-Mart. Some day they will have kids and end up shopping at Wal-Mart.

People from small towns hate Wal Mart and are glad the family is driving away from it. If the family shops there in the future, they hope they crash and die during their vacation.

The Wal-Mart family sees a car full of money.

It's all one big happy family of Wal-Mart shoppers. White Husband and wife, White children, etc.

The only thing missing is a clip of Mr. Lee from two houses down across the street:

It started out with Ms. Walmart needing some help with a clogged drain while Mr. Walmart was away on a business trip a few years ago....

Maybe she is just a friend of one or both of the white children who was invited on the trip? :shrug:

Wow! That's a real piece of work there. Surely you didn't invest your personal, non-company time into so much thought and typing did you?

As I read that I just kept saying, "Yep, he's probably right on that one."

Congrats, you're one of the first Planet members in a long time to think so much further into something than Rain Man while getting what is probably the 100% correct answer. :toast:

She is Chinese, just like everything they sell.
Spoken: The world today seems absolutely crackers.
With nuclear bombs to blow us all sky high.
There are fools and idiots sitting on the trigger.
It's depressing, and it's senseless, and that's why...
Intro: I like Chinese,
I like Chinese,
They only come up to your knees,
Yet they're always friendly and they're ready to please.
Verse: I like Chinese,
I like Chinese,
There's nine hundred million of them in the world today,
You'd better learn to like them, that's what I say.
Chorus: I like Chinese,
I like Chinese,
They come from a long way overseas,
But they're cute and they're cuddly, and they're ready to please.
Verse: I like chinese food,
The waiters never are rude,
Think of the many things they've done to impress,
There's Maoism, Taoism, I Ching and chess.
Chorus: So I like Chinese,
I like Chinese,
I like their tiny little trees,
Their Zen, their ping-pong, their
yin and yang-ese.
Verse: I like Chinese thought,
The wisdom that Confucious taught,
If Darwin is anything to shout about,
The Chinese will survive us all without any doubt.
Chorus: So I like Chinese,
I like Chinese,
They only come up to your knees,
Yet they're wise and they're witty, and they're ready to please.
Verse: (in Chinese)
Chorus: I like Chinese,
I like Chinese,
Their food is guaranteed to please,
A fourteen, a seven, a nine and lychees.
Chorus: I like Chinese,
I like Chinese,
I like their tiny little trees,
Their Zen, their ping-pong, their yin and yang-ese.
Fade: I like Chinese,
I like Chinese...

I have to think there is some cheating going on with the wife. Refer to the picture in the owned thread.
