Polish drink ads feature Mike Tyson, are bizarre #FdAdFriday
Wow. Poland's Black energy drink hired convicted rapist Mike Tyson to play piano and sing about his lack of self-control in a room full of sultry models, then have a mild freak out.
There are just so many flavours of wrong here, not least of which is the brand's racialized use of phrases like "That's the power of black" — and going so far as to co-opt "Black Power".
