An advertisement from a Chinese laundry company is bringing some rare unity to people on the internet as nearly everyone is calling it “the most racist ad” they’ve ever seen.
The ad features a mixed couple doing tasks around the house: he is painting and she is doing laundry.
Twitchy reports any familiarity with the scene ends right there as she then feeds him a detergent pod and puts him in the washer… only for him to emerge as another race:
So she sticks some sort of laundry detergent pod in the young black man’s mouth, shoves him into the washer, and after what sounds like a pretty painful rinse cycle, out pops a fairly clean and sparkling Chinese guy.
Watch the ad below:
Arguably the most racist ad I've ever seen. https://t.co/KT4DhFtMs6

Did she just feed him a tide pod?
