Sony PS3 and Nigerian Millionaires

So how do you get the  PS3 and Nigerian millionaire into a commercial?  Check out the video below.

This video has gotten a reaction from the Federal Government of Nigeria demanding an apology from Sony.  Others are calling the commercial, racist in nature and calling for a boycott of Sony products.  What about Sony electronics that people already own?  Should they throw them out?

Personally, I’m not offended by this at all and I think its being taken out of context.  I don’t see how its racist and I’ve experienced racism on multiple levels.

The FG of Nigeria has bigger fish to fry such as addressing the current state of kidnapping in Abia State.  IMO, responding to petty commercials like this, is just a waste of their time.
