Isolated Props to Michael Bay

In relation to all this discussion of jive-talking racist Transformers (by all rights, this should have been the subject of an eight-second cutaway gag on Family Guy, not something that actually exists in the world GOD DAMN YOU MICHAEL BAY) it blew my mind today to read that Michael Bay directed the classic "Aaron Burr" milk commercial. I never knew this, and since this commercial is quirky and charming, I'm all morally confused now.

Oh, oh, and here's another moral question! If two jive-talking racist Transformers are voiced by two different actors, and one actor is black and one actor is white, is one of the Transformers more racist than the other? Discuss.

Dana Stevens's review is pretty entertaining, by the way.

I haven't seen that commercial for ages. It's pretty good.
