They had it coming. After creating surprisingly innovative and funny new ads — ‘Ship My Pants’ and ‘Big Gas Savings’ — Kmart now has a bit of a problem on its hands: a racially risqué parody of its own viral ads.
The new video, “Kmart Knickers,” has the same premise: If you say that word quickly enough … yeah, you get the point. Reminder, this video was not made Kmart. Check out the controversial ad below:
The video was created by the California comedy group TheGunfordmay.
I’m sure Kmart might have welcomed a parody of one of its popular ads, but I’m not sure they wanted this kind of parody.
