It is interesting that you say this. Wal-Mart is using a black Boy Scout
in full uniform to stop a supply truck. He stops the truck by raising
his hand to help a little old lady across the street(highway).
Unfortunately, the next shot is a hundred people openning up
the back of the truck which appears illegal.
The ad says that some people will do anything to see whats coming to Wal-Mart.
I found the ad offensive (though it is cute)
