Ashy Or Classy?!? - T-Pain's Toshiba Commercial.

I'm all for rappers and singers getting that endorsement money. Reality is, nobody sells records nowadays. You have to give away 20 songs (ie: mixtapes) for everyone 1 that you sell. With record companies insisting on those dreaded 360 deals, the pressure is on recording artists to capitalize on their notoriety any way they can.

All that said, I'm not so sure if I like this T-Pain Toshiba commercial.

Unlike his other forays into mainstream American culture (ie: "I'm On A Boat"), I just can't co-sign this coonery. Making a mockery/self-parody of autotune (ie: that beer commercial he had awhile back) is one thing. Talkin' reckless and ignorant about technology you know nothing about, all while spitting food on good well-meaning white folks is another altogether. Whereas it seemed like T-Pain was in on the joke before, it's almost as if he has no idea the joke's on him this time.

Sorry, this sh*t is Ashy as hell.

T-Pain, go sit down somewhere and read a d*mn book!

Question: Ashy or Classy? Is this commercial just good clean fun or borderline coonery?
