Groupon's Offensive Super Bowl Ad

submitted on February 12, 2011 by DebsFreebies in "Member's Lounge"
Groupon, long known for its smart-aleck daily deal descriptions, took the joke a little too far last weekend and ended up insulting pretty much the entire Internet with a tasteless Super Bowl ad.

Groupon's Super Bowl advertisement about Tibet was based on a joke drastically reducing the seriousness of that suffering. Not all hope is lost, the ad says, because at least there are still refugees that will cook discounted food for White people!

The joke was intended to be absurd, but the absurdity presumed a lack of seriousness in the whole matter.
