American musician, entrepreneur and possible future senator Kid Rock is really sticking it to the Chinese factory worker, blasting foreign-made grills with guns in a new “America First” ad campaign.
“You know what’s American? Catapulting foreign-made grills and shooting them down because they stink,” says a woman wearing an American flag shirt in a very silly commercial for Rock’s new American Badass Grill.
“This is what we think of made in China,” Rock says before the grill is flung up into air and he starts firing his shotgun as “Bawitdaba” plays on in the background. The special effects then do the rest.
With the foreign grill left smoldering on the ground, Rock has only one thing to say: “In your face, China!”
Badass as that may have been, some Facebook commenters wonder if Rock had completely thought this ad through beforehand:
“I’m not sure he knows that the camera, computer and TV equipment he used to film this was made in China. Kid Rock might not be the brightest bulb in the box.”
“That is a trebuchet. The first traction trebuchets were invented by the Chinese around the 4th century BC.”
“I wonder if the shoes kid rock is wearing is made in the USA?”
But Rock appears ready to keep serving up the red meat. Another video shows him aiming a .50-caliber rifle at a Chinese-made grill, which subsequencly explodes into flames.
Your move, George Foreman.
