Graham Greene's Revenge...

I got this from a friend:

"In Canada, there's a company selling medicinal remedies under the so-named "Lakota" brand. In their long running ad campaign, the company featured non-Natives taking the wondrous medicine and voila~~afterward they appear onscreen in a full headdress!

Our own Rob Schmidt has followed the Lakota Brand company and gave it his "Stereotype of the Month" honor last year for its demeaning imagery. In a more humorous light, however, actor Graham Greene did a parody of the ad on a CBC program earlier this year which is much more entertaining than the lame campaign the company ran."
