From Humor to Commentary (Wassup Part II)

In my previous post, I used the Bud Light "Wassup" commercial to illustrate a point about how men are generally depicted as anti-intellectual and lazy. We all found this commercial funny, but the subtle stereotypes it underscored should not be ignored.

During the election season, I was quite heartened to find that the same group of actors that did the original commercial had taken the same concept, using the same wit and humor, and used it to make some serious commentary on the current state of our country.
