Re: Ice Cream

I hope you do not mind me asking, but what is this about? Loneliness, advertising, eating ice-cream in the winter or something else?

Best, D

Re: Ice Cream

What struck me about the scene was the anomaly between solitary black consumer and the blatantly white Bradley Cooper advertising Haagen Dazs. I'm asian and very sensitive to racism, so it's just something I noticed.

This interpretation did not even cross my mind...

I understand what you say about your sensitivity on these issues, but I think an analysis of the ad will probably conclude that its main focus is to target the female population.

I would like to add for balance that the specific ice-cream company has ran a diverse set of advertisements in the past which can be seen here:

You're quite right in that it isn't at all racist,, I just thought it an odd scene.
