You sound like you work for Visa.
I'm watching CNN as I type this and your ad just ran. To be honest there are racial undertones in the commercial I would recommend you guys re-think before they blow up into an issue.
What I'm talking about is during the commercial they are talking about how 38 states use Visa prepaid cards to give out benefits to those in need. Being that you should a grocery store shopper while this was said, I'm guessing this implied food stamps. The problem is these food shoppers you showed were only black from what I could see.
Associating African Americans and food stamps? That doesn't give the right message. I would change this commercial ASAP if I were Visa.
Disclosure: I am a moderator/paid staff of this site, which does have advertising relationships with some credit cards that are discussed and linked to. Regardless, anything I say is my honest opinion.
