UNICEF Ad: Santa Claus is Jerk Who Hates Poor Kids

| by Mark Berman Opposing Views

In a strange new ad by UNICEF, Santa Claus is portrayed not as the jolly fellow we all know and love but an angry man who doesn't "do poor countries."

The ad shows a crusty St. Nick in his workshop opening up boxes of toys. One box, however, contains medical supplies, much to Santa's disgust.

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:

"This ain't no Christmas gift. So, you buy this products for your friend, and all this stuff goes to poor kids? Like in Africa?"

He then adds, "I don't do poor countries."

The message of the ad is that UNICEF goes where Santa Claus does not -- it is just an odd way of saying it.
