Commercials I would like to see

One in which 王力宏becomes fat and ugly after all the MacDonalds that he's eaten during his commercials.

Also, a follow up to the unspeakably annoying commercial in which this woman's teeth are so white that they shine after using 黑人or Black Person toothpaste, in which she's on a date and her teeth literally blind her date. Thereby showing that having freakishly white teeth will actually make your life miserable.

taiwanese seem to me to be rather openly racist. and i dont think they see anything terribly wrong with it either....

Yeah, my friend kept calling this African American teacher in her work 黑人 when I asked her why she did that she said, "Because I don't know his name." so I asked if she would call a white mutual friend of ours 白人 if she didn't know his name and she said, "No." I asked her why not and she said, "I don't know. It just seems natural to me."

yeah....
i often hear these:
小黑: black people
小墨: mexicans

but there isnt a 小白 for whites....they're usually just 老美. interesting how people of "color" are referred to with the more diminuitive "小" suffix

theres a celebrity in taiwan that goes by the name黑人, because his skin is dark. have you seen him?

黑人 is that guy on that tv game show with all the school girls. when i was there daniel wu was on and the show also made no sense remember?

yeah, they've just been running the one where 5566 is on the show constantly so it's just a combination of bad. I swear that that they run that show at least 5 times a day.

yeah, the show that 黑人 hosts is just sick.

its like very thinly veiled teen porn to me, really. and i think thats part of why its so popular. i wouldnt be surprised if 50% of its viewers are truck drivers.
