"If there was a counterpoint to this ad in which a bunch of R&B artists are accosting someone with more "mature" tastes, it would be a little less insulting."

But if they ran that ad it would be insulting to a culture. Or some would say.

Everyone has their favorite and least favorite types of music. For me personally, I could see a country band in place of the violinists, and the ad would make perfect sense.

The ad is outrageous and absurd because classical music, in general, is considered more peaceful and soothing than rap, punk, etc. Since it is absurd, people laugh at it, and I think that's what they were aiming for.

I'm just not crazy about MTV in general, but they're cute ads.
