I thought Canadian actor Dan Akroyd was pretty funny in that bit. His makeup was similar to the makeup that I used, and while he's obviously a real comedian and actor, his Jamaican accent isn't very good.
The real reason I'm posting this is that I've been reading on the forums that some found my video blog offensive and I wanted to know exactly what is so different about this skit and the skit that I did?
Maybe you found both of them equally offensive? I don't really know, nor can I really understand why a relatively small group of people see my skit as blackface.
OK, I'm officially done now, lol. I won't revisit the topic again, but I thought that adding this little clip would put things into perspective a little bit.
