How do you give a vanilla dessert rhythm? Apparently, you just make it brown. It sprouts big, red cartoonish lips and googly eyes, and breaks into routine as a “Hip Hop cupcake.” What the fuck publicists at Duncan Hines were thinking when they built a campaign around blackface, I don’t know, but they’ve since pulled the YouTube video created for them by a company called Filmaka.
Classy, guys. Hat tip, I believe, to Patrick Alan Coleman.
UPDATE:Eater National has the pulled video. Question: Does the fact that they're actually preforming crappy techno and not hip hop make this any better? No? Didn't think so.
