Well, in the 15 and 30 second spots, when there is more of a focus on Uncle Drew as a character, we are supposed to laugh at how stereotypically black Uncle Drew is. I don't find it funny. It's racist in the same way that Traci Jordan of 30 Rock or J B Smoove from Curb Your Enthusiasm is racist. I know that's the shtick of those comedians, but it's not funny. If Uncle Drew was a stereotypical Jewish man, or Muslim man I don't think that people would enjoy this spot as much.

It says, "A zero calorie cola in disguise" at the end.

You think a zero calorie is going to be awful, the same way old people are awful at everything, but then it ends up being good.

@chuckieT - thanks so much. I'm sure the agency feels secure now that their creativity has been validated by a junior retail hack.
