TV commercial about racism as a face cream

by Carmen Van Kerckhove

Remember that racism as a face cream print ad we discussed a few weeks back? Well, it turns out there’s a TV campaign to go along with it.

According to gay persons of color, the spot was “directed by Tim Gibbs and produced by 8 Commercials, Sydney, for Saatchi & Saatchi, Sydney, the commercial won the Silver Plaque at the United Nations Department of Public Information Awards in September.”

So we’ve already discussed the print ad. But what do you think of the spot?
