Emerald Nuts: Anti-Nordic?

As a Norwegian-American, I’m highly offended by part of the new ad campaign by Emerald Nuts. In the “Encouraging Norwegians Love Emerald Nuts” spot, they shoot the Norwegian! This is shocking, repugnant treatment of a people who love everyone and have never, ever, ever hurt a soul!

Swedes must be in charge of their advertising.

11/2/2004. A version of this post originally appeared on Slate’s “Fray,” their message boards. I’m only mentioning it here because the post is an “Editor’s Pick,” the first time this has happened for me. Hooray!
