Is the Volkswagon "Super Bowl" ad racist?

Posted: Updated:

     As we told you on Tuesday, new Super Bowl ads are premiering ahead of the game.

     But a new ad from Volkswagen is getting some backlash.

     Some say having a tall white man speak in a Jamaican accent is racist.

     The ad is part of the company's new "Get In, Get Happy" campaign.

     Volkswagen is standing by the commercial, saying it is designed to brighten people's day.
