Is Duncan Hines Serving Up Blackface Cakes?

December 10, 2010 / Posted by:

Some people have screamed “FUCK YES!!” to that question and demanded that Duncan Hines remove the commercial from YouTube and think about their life choices for turning delicious cupcakes into drops of sugary racism (Mel Gibson just got hard). The commercial in question from director Josh Binder called “Hip Hop Cupcakes” shows a few vanilla cupcakes getting into blackface with the help of Duncan Hines’ Amazing Glazes. Duncan Hines has since pulled the ad off of YouTube, but Eater has it up in case you haven’t seen it for yourself.

And besides Duncan Hines pulling some Al Jolson shit, what the hell kind of beat boxing are those cupcakes doing? That sounds more like the Manhattan Transfer trying to cover Daft Punk with the help of a Jem keytar.
