Dockers "California Soul" Commercial

How these niggas gonna use Marlena Shaw's "California Soul" for a Dockers commercial featuring nothing but white people doing the least soulful shit imaginable? I'm sure Marlena ain't complaining, but damn... Can we get a nigga pop-lockin' or something? The disparity in this ad is staggering. What next? Paul Simon in a Popeye's commercial? Nah, I ain't frontin on Uncle Paulie. But all my official, thorough-like hood niggas know Garfunkel kept him funky.

I knew I couldn't be the only one slightly offended by this ad. Even thou he prolly rocks nike slacks, they coulda shown tiger on the links or kickin back with his wife or sumthin more ethnically diverse and pleasing. Ayo Ron, was "Under one roof" as offensive as u initially thought it might be?

We all know there ain't a damn thing soulful about Docker's. Those are strictly work slacks for cats who have to wear them in a "business casual" work enviornment. For the persuasion (aka white people) Docker's are a way of life. At work, home, the golf course, etc...etc...
