This week we intellectually drag the Ancestry DNA AD that glamorized slavery on primetime TV. First, we hit you with the science, hard facts, that disprove this sick love story. Then, we speak with Aspirin AD Woman, also known as the fancy ass copywriter, also known as Flagrant Creative, Jewell Donaldson to break down how ads like this see the light of day. Lastly, we re-create what an Ancestry ad for Black people SHOULD sound like and it is guaranteed to make you laugh so hard you get that (hot girl/boy)summer 6 pack you been after ! .
