Here is the link:

Singing Cupcakes in black face, I don't find it racist but then again that is Me. I think it is in poor taste, but not racist.

Using the name Hip Hop cupcakes is in poor poor taste.

I think it's Old school promotion, coming up with an ad campaign that is controversial is one thing.

Using images that you know will cause drama is a cop out!! I think its harder to come up with a edgy yet tasteful ad campaign, because that would take creatively......

Duncan Hines #Epic Fail!!!!

At least you were smart enough not to go nation wide with that campaign, only Youtube. And you pulled the ad off youtube......

But I guess the purpose of the Ad still hit its mark.

We are now talking about Racist Hip Hop cupcakes by Duncan Hines.

Extraordinary and impressive new direction. I thought you were leaving the blogosphere forever. Man was I wrong. You are bound to be stronger than ever. Do you hear the applause?

I watched the clip on the link you gave. Why in the world are they calling them hip hop? That music wasn't even vaguely hip hop! **laughing** I didn't get black face from that clip but I can see how it could be interpreted that way. Personally, I wasn't offended by it.
