Ga Ga: The Holiday Inn Express’ White Rapper Commercial

Blindie just loves a good comercial, especially one that turns stereotypes on its ear.

In this Holiday Inn Express commercial a button-down, slack-wearing, white office dork strolls through what we presume is a black neighborhood (probably gentrifying the area, but that’s another topic altogether) and out raps a young African American male who tries to belittle his nerdiness.

With phraseology like “cause I know you’re gonna drool when you hear me gettin’ wordy….turning pennies into dimes, I shift paradigms…” Blindie has to admit the hotel chain just got a little hipper in our eyes.
