Internationally-loved Barack Obama is not surprisingly big in Japan (especially Obama, Japan). Marketers there are already attempting to capitalize on him and his universal message of believable change. And with the above TV spot, E Mobile believes that changing Obama into a primate and dressing him in a presidential monkey suit will sell a shitload of cell phones. Now before we cry ‘racism,’ let us remember that the crazy Japanese are famous for senselessly insane TV commercials. And this spot was apparently produced before the whole Obama sock monkey incident. So, before we shove Jim Crow down E Mobile’s throat……who am I kidding? E Mobile—you’re racist bastards.
