I agree with everyone who believes this commercial ad is not meant to be taken as offensive. The point of the commercial is that Pepsi Max tastes just as good as the great tasting Pepsi, but it has no calories. I can definitely see how this commercial could be seen as racist and offensive, with the ending of the commercial having an African American "knocking out" a caucasian women, then making a run for it. this can be seen as a stereotypical reference to African Americans, but I do not think that is what the advertisement is getting at. I find the commercial humorous, and that is how the advertisement is suppose to appear.
