Am I the only one not offended by a Pink Donkey?

NBCLA reports animal activists are upset with the promo for what is reportedly a new taco joint in Culver City set to open in June.  “Pink Taco’s” painted a donkey pink and paraded it around the city and made this video as part of their marketing.  I’m really not offended by it but do get it that some were.  I’m actually more surprised by the gratuitous inclusion of little people flopping about in the video than I am of the painted donkey.  Paint washes off after all.  (Sorry I have no snazzy photo and the video won’t embed for some reason).

What say you on the painted donkey?  On the double entendre of Pink Taco, better name for a food joint or a strip joint?

  1. I love everything about that video. The painted donkey, the mini-luchadores, the double entendre…all of it. The music is good, too.

    With so much going on in the world, with so many legitimate targets for disapproval, I don’t understand the manufactured outrage at what is really just an animal actor doing his job. Is it that the donkey was pink? I’m fairly certain it wasn’t a spray can of Krylon that did that. The actor was wearing makeup, which was later washed off.

  2. For the record, Pink Taco has been open for a few years now. The video is dated 2007. The latest uproar is over the return of said pink ass for Pinko de Mayo. The years appear not to have been kind to the burro, by the way, who looks a little the worse for wear, pink paint notwithstanding.)

    I believe the issue was that it was 90 degrees out and the donkey was tied in one spot.
