Fk those dingleberries.
It's a great photo, and a beautiful ad.

Just paint the tires and you should be OK.

I just read the article - what BS. "Human Rights Watch said it was shocked to see an American brand name running an advertising campaign that would draw "howls of outrage" if released in the United States..."

Seriously? Can we get over this already? I would be more concerned about eating a doughnut called Charcoal flavored. Not the most tempting flavor.

Oh, wait - can we say "charcoal"? Is that insulting to anyone?

I agree with everyone here. Get over it already. And besides that is not in this country. I read that in South Africa, WP call BP the N-word all the time, and BP call WP that back, and then they hug or shake hands. To them, it is just a harmless greeting and means nothing disrespectful.

Likewise, even the anti-gay slurs are treated like that is South Africa. A rapper down there was using offensive f-word for gay men, and received US criticisms for it. But guess what? That rapper who used the f-bomb was openly gay and regularly called himself that word. So to him, it was more of a term of endearment. He wasn't using it as a hate word.
