Look at the type of commercials MTV Europe produces.....First, Last Year's PS2 Ads....Now This!!!

I just happened to find this video while perusing the halls of Youtube. Check out what the original poster of the clip had to say about this particular commercial:

In this advert called 'Colored Is Better', we see a housewife who takes her skinny, out of shape, white husband, tosses him into the washing machine, and with the help of the detergent, she turns him into a muscle bound black man. This ad is so over the top with it's misandristic message as well as playing on old racial stereotypes, and is patently so biggoted on so many levels, I don't know where to begin with the criticism. The line forms on the left. What's your opinion? This ad is being shown on MTV Europe.

Let's try to answer the above poster questions. What do you guys think about this ad? Is it reverse racism? Or is it original recipe racism, playing into old Black male stereotypes?
