These are great. Bonus points for the ones with companies that have openly expressed left wing views but botch big time on these

@massdebater
This wasn't a gaffe so much as a localization that western media got hold of. There are no black people in Poland, so having black people in an ad doesn't really make sense.

Pan cakes are flat. Girls without tits are flat. You say you date a girl with flat tits because she has great personality.

@kizzmybutt
Does Microsoft have a real marketing department with actual PR people or is it flat management where the nerds with no self-awareness do it all? From far as I can remember all their ads and marketing have made my skin crawl.

@Methnerd
They do, but they outsource it all to Pajeets who have warped views of the prevailing American culture.

The same goes for NASA, all of the advertising either targets little girls or the Reddit "steampunk, futurism, and zombies interest me" crowd. PR for established household names is so easy it's become bitch work.

Most Indians working for larger corporations are sent to useless positions where they can throw themselves into a grindstone for peanuts. Instituting affirmative action in the workplace backfired completely, the majority of non-white workers are now hired only to satisfy a quota and are immediately delegated to unimportant drivel.

Sounds like it worked exactly as intended.
