Controversial Marketing Campaign of the Day: A new Olympic Games ad by Argentina captures Fernando Zylberberg, a star field-hockey player, training for London on the Falkland Islands. “To compete on English soil, we train on Argentine soil,” the spot says.

In one of many direct tweets to Kutcher’s Twitter handle attacking the spot, Raj says: “An actual Indian named Raj does not find @aplusk in brown face to be funny.”
