Mastication for the Nation?

Advertising watchdogs have launched an investigation after more than 100 people complained a commercial for chewing gum is racist.

The television ads for Trident gum have been accused of mocking the Jamaican accent.

They show a Jamaican stand-up comedian being interrupted during his routine and handed a packet of the gum.

He then runs from the theatre and shouting the slogan "Mastication for the Nation".
What do you think?
