Goner Message Board / Memphis / ESPN has a super strange stereotype of Memphis
Posted: Nov 14, 2008 1:01 pm
Here's the lead:

"ESPN confirmed Friday the cancellation of an upcoming ad campaign after learning the third-party group producing the commercials planned to have actors portray potentially offensive stereotypes of students at 24 colleges."

Here's their description of Memphis:

"What can we say about Memphis? He's a southern BLACK kid, really culinary and polite. He's artistic, and draws comic books really well."

What the hell does that even mean?

But their stereotype of UT was spot on:

"Tennessee is orange crazy. The ice tray in her orange fridge, that freezes the water she dyes orange, is that orange. The party girl cowboy hat she wears is a white and orange zebra print. The tattoo on her lower back is Pantone 3 for that Tennessee orange. The only thing that's not orange is her dog, which is the mascot Smokey. Did we mention she's crazy? A slutty girl who would hang out at the cowgirl hall of fame."
