The poor, pitiful (yet evil) white male in nearly every commercial is a bumbling, idiotic fool. The evil white creature who cannot light a gas grill or make a layup has somehow managed to hold down every less than successful being in history. Oh, and he also managed to create everything you use or consume on a daily basis. But Buick takes the anti-male concept to a new low. Now the lowly, white male is getting his ass kicked by Mezcans.
That’s right, the hombre who was raking the leaves last year may very well be cutting your grass with your wife this week! (Note: in the parlance of AWD’S college years, “cutting someone’s grass” meant stealing his girl.) And all it took was a new Buick and a raise! That’s some girl you’ve got there, Lance!
This insulting commercial made me want to call Buick (throw up) from the first time I saw it:
The spot is titled “Keep Up With The Garcias.” The white wife looks lustfully at either the car and Señor Garcia or both as they drive up and wave. Her nerdy, metrosexual (i.e. homosexual in a metro) husband just happens to have a pair of binoculars handy in the kitchen (he might have been checking out el paquete of Señor Garcia, too) to get some close up action of the new car. Interestingly enough, the commercial barely shows the car. Probably a reason for that!
Then the wife humiliates her husband by saying “maybe he got a raise.” When the husband says “good for him,” the wife dreamily replies “good for her.” Mmmmm, not only is Señor Garcia good looking and can lay some cable in the bedroom but now he has more pesos to spend on the little esposa on @#&* Louis Vuitton purses! Doesn’t this illustrate the sad shape of today’s culture. Instead of selling Buicks because they are (nope!) a superior car and great value, Buick relies on envy. Jealousy and lust are used to sell their products.
From the looks of their kitchen, Mr and Mrs Metrosexual are doing pretty well themselves. But Mrs Metrosexual is always looking for the BBD (Bigger Better Deal). Lust, envy and greed rule the day. Don’t be satisfied with what you have, you must get a new car and bang your neighbor to be REALLY happy.
And let’s not overlook that Buick is ridiculing white males with the good looking, successful Hispanic guy and the long-haired nerdy white wimp. Ask yourself this. Unless they grew up in America, how many Hispanic guys do we see like Señor Garcia? In actuality, most Hispanics I see are holding leaf blowers and eating out of 7-11’s. And they prefer trokas and not Buicks. But hell, at least they work.
This anti-male commercial is just another theme on a worn out script played out for decades. The white guy is an idiot while his boss is the intelligent minority/female astounded at his stupidity. Any FedEx commercial proves this. An interesting note, the entire Board of Directors is comprised of bumbling idiotic white guys. Remind me to use UPS next time.
Beating up white males is the new craze in America. Yes, ridicule and minimize the sons of the men who built this country. Tell them they should feel guilty because their parents had responsibility and got out of beds to work and build this country while they do the same! Rewrite history, portray fairy tales in commercials, movies and pop culture that say Islam played a great part in building America or America was built on the backs of blacks, etc. And even tell white males a Hispanic cat next door will put a twinkle in the eyes of your lady in the bedroom/boudoir while making more money than you. But don’t be surprised when white males drop out or stop trying. AWD wrote of this very tragic trend recently:
Here’s the deal. Buick sucks. They can put Tiger Woods or Shaquille O’Neal behind the wheel and they’ll still suck. By the way, haven’t seen any Tigers or Shaqs in Buick commercials lately. Buick must have given up on the Buick-buying brovas. They lost that market to Escalades and public transportation. Now Buick looks to corner the future Democrats known as illegal aliens. If so, Buick better introduce the Buick Lowrider with hydraulics and a little chain steering wheel, vato!
Something like eso!
Wait until Los Garcia move in their 20 familia de Mexico and Primo Juancho brings his lowrider amigos to the new ‘hood. The little slutty wife will have more fun than she ever imagined.
Yes, this is the future of America if Republicans, Democrats, and cultural elites get their way.
Chevere! Chevere! Hey, can I get spinners on that La Sabre?
Now for some good news! It seems Cheerio’s has figured it out! Here is a pro-father commercial that shows white men in a good light. Long time coming!
Bravo, Cheerios! Bravo!
