8827: Death Race 2011.
A commercial hyping the Indianapolis 500 has been running a lot on ABC and ESPN, although MultiCultClassics can’t find it online. The spot essentially glorifies the potential to witness deadly crashes, as a speeding car literally flips through the air—via perfect slow-motion effects—and disintegrates in a fiery explosion. Guess Indy 500 promoters know what their audience wants to see.
Also, check out the image below from the official Indy 500 website. Were they trying to create a sense of diversity by finding a shot with a few Black dudes in the crowd?
