People were so furious about this Pepsi ad that Pepsi pulled it after just one day. Watch it here and decide if it's offensive:

It focuses on the (now semi-defunct) public option, but the same logic applies to all government provisioned services. Bonus: The video combines (1) cheerful '50s sitcom-style theme music, and (2) allusions to a favorite childhood capitalism propaganda computer game, Lemonade Stand—the companion piece to the classic game Oregon Trail—which is, incidentally, now available for Mac.

This video is just one entry in a contest for health care reform hate videos sponsored by the Independent Women's Voice.
