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:

In such a world, does a sophomore from Butler — who averaged only 15.5 point per game and shot less than 30% from the college three-point line — go in the lottery? 

That is the question the Utah Jazz should have asked. I get the sense, though, that this question didn’t enter the minds of the people in Salt Lake City.
