Wash Away Latino Stereotypes Using Ketchup and Tide Pods

Apparently, this woman is tired of being called a 'beaner'

Apparently, this woman is tired of being called a ‘beaner’

In an unusual (mostly bizarre) new marketing effort, Procter & Gamble has partnered with the National Council of La Raza “to celebrate the contributions of Latinos and fight stereotypes.”

And how do you fight stereotypes? Easy! Just follow these simple steps:

  1. Take bottle of ketchup
  2. Use said ketchup to jot down the offending stereotype on a T-shirt
  3. Throw said T-shirt with offending stereotype in washing machine
  4. Use Tide pods
  5. Repeat if there are more offended Latinos in household

Voilá!… adiós mojados, wetbacks, beaners and balseros!

WATCH. CRINGE. DO NOT REPEAT.

One Response to Wash Away Latino Stereotypes Using Ketchup and Tide Pods

    Yeah, hamfisted, glib, condescending…..although at another level, it’s nice to see somebody kinda/sorta trying to get beyond their Marketing MBAs — who took a year of high school Spanish and vacationed in Cancun once — telling them that a sombrero and poncho are the keys to getting Latino customers.

    But there’s definitely an unnerving subtext, akin to saying “if a black person rubs our Tide bleach stick on their face before entering Saks’ or Macy’s, they won’t get followed around by the store security guard”.
