    A giant corporation exploiting people for a shallow ad campaign is "genius"?

    People in Braddock were paid to make this commercial, and mebbe a little exposure will help them find new businesses to move there. Should we just ignore suffering in America IYO?

    Corporate America does not care about the working man. Madison Avenue ad agencies do not care about the working man, except for the gritty cache they give to the videos. A cutesy video designed to sell blue jeans is not going to help the American worker.

    Levi's isn't. Their jeans are made OVERSEAS:

    Levi Strauss & Co. - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

    Why won't Levi's set up a factory in Braddock, PA?

    Answer: corporate profits are higher when you fuck American workers in favor of Chinese ones.

    There are few clothing manufacturers in the US anymore, William Joyce. Even fewer textile mills. Sad, but IMO, the commercial is still a good thing. So sorry you feel they exploited these people, but I can see where you might feel that way.

    Hell has frozen over, money grows on trees, and good times are just around the corner for the poor - I agree with William.

    How about we start making here, supporting here, and buying made here, makes more sense than the Madison Avenue ads designed to make buying American named products made by slave labor over there all comfy and warm.

    Then when we are all able to have a piece of the pie we can helps others sell pie, or may be they can help themselves too.
