My husband and I checked out the summer blockbuster, Guardians of the Galaxy, on Sunday night. (The review is coming.) I was looking forward to the previews but before that there were the usual commercials. One commercial that caught our attention was a Coca-cola commercial that featured Tony Stewart with a bunch of other well-known race drivers. Here is the full version of the commercial on YouTube.
Considering we are in the Poconos and racing has returned to the Poconos. We are a little aware of the racing world, albeit however little. We were both surprised that Coke wouldn’t have pulled ALL commercials with Tony Stewart after he struck and killed a fellow race driver, Kevin Ward Jr., on Saturday night at Canandaigua, NY. While Stewart hasn’t been charged for any criminal wrong doings and the incident is still under investigation, any endorsements by Stewart should be postponed to pay respects for his fellow race driver. Or, perhaps, Stewart would want to start a Kevin Ward Jr. Fund?
