White blight

Sony's ghastly PlayStation ad.
"what the... fuck?"

Nubian of Blac(k)ademic spots a PlayStation Portable White ad that might represent a new low Madison Avenue, pictured at left.

(View full-sized image here.)

What can you say about an ad like this?

How about...
Dear Sony,

Please fire your ad agency. Lynching isn't a joke. Do not attempt to convince the gaming public that your system is superior by likening your potential customers to anime-besotted Klansmen.
Yours truly,
&c
Nubian is encouraging readers to complain to Sony about the ad. Here is the contact information she supplies:
