Diverisity Day And An Awful Asian Themed Ad

By SuperSpy 

Guess what time it is? It’s the 4A’s Diversity in Advertising Career Day at the Hilton Towers in New York City on Wednesday, April 22, 2009.

Diversity in Advertising Career Day came about in 2007 after New York City forced advertising agencies to diversify their ranks and also allow City officials to monitor the process.


In honor of such news, we’d like to post a print ad originally spotted by the excellent blogger HighJive. His assessment was so astute that we shall just copy and paste:

“To hawk the Asian Collection from Corelle, the advertiser uses Asians. Very subtle-like smashing a plate over one’s head.”
