Actually, I was thinking the same thing. I don't know anything about this troupe/group of players, but I'm hoping that was their purpose.
I don't think this video is racist, it's a commentary on racism. There's an important difference. And I think some people have a hard time making that distinction. :)
Also, best Harlem Shake ever. ;D
Nope. Italians have a lot of stereotypes and more than a few are TRUE. Not afraid or too embarrassed to deny it. Not that sensitiveand don't take ourselves too seriously. I've been called a dago, a wop, and been asked who in the family is in the mafia. Do I make pasta everyday? They assume I'm Catholic. People have asked me if I have a photo of the Pope next to Sinatra. (My mother did have a picture of the Pope up beside Dean Martin for years and years.) And yes all the furniture does have plastic covering. Not offended at all.
LOL that poor guy is about to pass out.
LOL two people voted herp derp.
This video was hilarious.
When racial stereotypes are used in the manner as they are here it isn't racist but a commentary on racism.
I have to say that the Harlem Shake cut that they did is a really popular meme right now, and the guy who does that song (Baauer) is playing at the club I work at on Saturday. That show sold out...BOOM! lol It is going to be nuts. People are just crazy for that song right now. :) (Sorry about hijacking the post, lol. It's fun to work where I work sometimes!) Also this meme pic was taken at my club, too:
