The worst lawyer commercial I have ever seen!

There is a controversy brewing over a commercial for a law firm that was posted on YouTube recently.  The company that produced it says it was contacted by someone claiming to work for the firm and that this person approved the commercial.  The firm argues its Facebook account was hacked and that it has asked the advertising company to take it off the web.  The ad company has refused.  For now, the ad is still available here.  It speaks for itself.

Soon after the ad was discovered, Above the Law criticized what it called “racist imagery.” The ad company protested and PopeHat then responded in very strong terms (calling the ad company person "a racist asshole").  Raw Story, Lowering the Bar, FindLaw and the ABA Journal also have stories on the controversy.
