Stupid Foreigner Commercials

 Did you see the Folger’s coffee commercial?  The nice American aid worker receives a holiday care package in Romania. Inside the rather small box is a huge plastic container of Folger’s coffee. He MacGyvers a coffee pot, and shows the poor backward foreigners the absolute joy of watery coffee. Who knew Romanians never heard of coffee?

The first stupid foreigner one I saw was Whopper Virgins from Burger King.  Poor villagers from Thailand, Greenland, and Romania are shown taste testing Whoppers and McDonald’s burgers.   Apparently, these simple folk don’t even have a word for burger, and have never eaten a burger. 

Why pick on the Romanians?   The Transylvanians should capitalize on their new notoriety with Vlad kebabs and Dracul sunglasses.  At least they’d keep the money in their own country.
