With so much talk about being politically correct (PC) nowadays – it should come as no surprise that the new spots by MetroPCS are drawing some attention.

Just yesterday we came across an article in Adage in which Bill Imada wrote a piece questioning whether MetroPCS could produce funny and unique commercials without playing on certain ethic stereotypes that are perpetrated among Americans.

One could argue that if the intent of these ads are to generate buzz and awareness than MetroPCS succeeded. But others will still question whether it’s necessary for this company to play on specific ethnic stereotypes in order to stand apart from other telecomm providers.

The main question is whether or not these commercials are offensive.

What do you think…
