Volkswagen’s GTI campaign for the Hispanic market trades the creepy ‘Fast’ gremlin for cartoon hero, Speedy Gonzales.
Check out all 3 spots Cats, Replay and Speed Bump.
Anybody remember his cartoons being banned in the US of A for “offensive ethnic stereotyping”?
Speedy isn’t half as bad as the WWII-era cartoons of Popeye single-handedly defeating the Japanese naval fleet. Talk about racial stereotypes.
Are you trying to imply that’s not how it happened?
