Sugary and scandalous

Duncan Hines has put its foot in it with its latest commercial, "Hip Hop Cupcakes."


After angry blog postings from Racialicious and others, Hines pulled this spot, but you can still find the video on Eater.com.

What I'd like to know is what adman thought that was hiphop. Have them lip-synch some Eazy E and then come talk to me.
