You know those Summer’s Eve commercials that created quite a stir recently? The ones that seemed to imply all women’s vadges are dirty but most especially those of women of color?
Here’s the “black version”:
And the “Latina version”:
But there was no Asian version. Which left me with all sorts of confused feelings. Like, Hey, are our vadges not dirty, too? Wait, I didn’t just say that. But it feels bad to be left out! No, no, it doesn’t. What I mean is…I just really really want to see what a stereotypical Asian vadge sounds like? Okay?
And then, I got my wish*:

Peeps have gotten pretty riled up after watching Sony’s new commercial, which features Justin Timbersnake and Peyton “If there’s a commercial nearby, I’ll be in it” Manning speaking “Mandarin” over a competitive ping pong match.
But after watching the spot, we realized that all the wacky flurryfaloo is actually the result of those darn subtitles being written up incorrectly! Yup, it may have seemed like the guys were ching-chonging us with Mandaran-ish gibberish, but that’s just not so! Nuh uh!
How do we know? We asked a linguistics expert, a guy we
found on the street like to call Mandarin Mike.
Now that we think about it, this commercial is freaking hilarious.

Ping Pong Playa opens today in NY and CA and next Friday in select cities.
Don’t get me started on the ping pong movie, Balls of Fury, that opens this weekend. Honestly, I’m afraid that if I get into it, I will filibuster for days until people come to haul me off and have me committed. So I’ll just let the pictures from its premiere do the talking. Check out George Lopez, a star in the movie, with his wife and daughter on the red carpet:
Maggie Q looks Asian again. She also looks like she’s dying, but, eh, you can’t win ‘em all.
