Five Funny Controversial Super Bowl Commercials
Bud Light 2011
Carlos Mencia has been criticised for plagiarism and political incorrectness; Bud Light beer commercials are famous (or infamous) for being raunchy, crude and generally shocking. Mencia starring in a Bud Light ad was bound to be messy. Sure enough, the commercial was denounced for being racist. Very racist. Although some viewers found Mencia teaching a immigrants English via pickup lines and requests for beer hilarious, many were offended by the depictions of racial and ethnic stereotypes. Whether you consider this commercial funny or crude, it’s undeniably one of the Super Bowl’s most well-known.
