I can’t believe that Cadillac is using Nobody Speak in their latest commercial. Maybe someone can explain to me why telling your customers to eat a bag of dicks is effective branding.

The uncensored music video is below. WARNING the lyrics definitely NSFW.



"You know, Scotland has its own martial arts. Yeah, it's called Fuck You. It's mostly just head butting and then kicking people when they're on the ground." - Charlie MacKenzie (Mike Myers in "So I Married an Axe Murderer")

Probably has more to do with the lyrics at 1:17 than the bag of dicks line.

Okay, I watched the whole thing and can't for the life of me see what Cadillac has to do with that video.... which was quite bizarre in itself....

Whole bunch of rich white people beating the S&i$ out of each other..... I guess there was some kind of message in it.... especially with the American Flag at the end and the poor cleaning lady just looking on....

So, this isn't the actual commercial, just the uncensored music video?

Could you not find the actual commercial?

Here's a link to one of the commercials. They use the song in a bunch of them. I just think it truly bizarre for any corporate brand to associate itself with a song with those lyrics.

Woke soundtrack for woke commercials. Minorities running through walls and windows and chasing down cars. No white men. Cute.

We are not the target audience for this ad campaign. The people that love this kind of shit are, and they would find the use of that track in a commercial to be "edgy."

I remember being shocked when the Gap used "Do Ya" by Peaches for one of their commercials. That particular track is basically the only track on her album not involving risque sexual themes. (Coincidentally, Samantha Bee uses another track off the same album as the theme to her show, Full Frontal.)

Cadillac knows what it's doing. They want those people who have heard the DJ Shadow song to think they're edgy and cool, while also not offending people who haven't.

You actually pay attention to commercials?

Cadillac commercials have been leftist shit for quite some time. Whitey's in the back seat if he's there at all, black women are powerful and in charge, the usual pandering horseshit. If you haven't noticed, ask someone who is observant...

Like a police officer



Notice anything?:



Only women are depicted as rulers. Whitey runs alongside the queen's carriage, and he carries the bags at the end of the commercial. That's his only involvement; envious, child-like observer, or servant.

Hello? McFly?

To Cadillac's credit, they weren't always so spineless. This is from 2014, and I recall they got a lot of grief for it. The start of catering to the "woke".

Hard to observe when one does not even watch them. I always just skip over.

Now, this is damn silly. Who do you think you're fooling? How many times in this forum have we taken exception to content in advertising? You want to behave as if you're unaware of, say, Gillette's crystal clear message in its commercials? Come on. I don't believe for one second that you're not aware of the PC bullshit being conveyed to the American people by corporations via their advertising. Not for one single second. You're a daily visitor to this forum and you most certainly have seen MANY of these threads and you're in this thread. You opened it and read it, and I took the time to provide you with an example, which, instead of addressing my points, you chose to deflect by acting clueless. Don't pull this shit with me.

I am well aware of the nonsense hence the reason I skip over them and don’t pay attention.
