Typecast Mockery

Traditionally taboo stereotypes become a lighthearted but edgy source of humor

Implications - Today’s humor is truly uninhibited, with traditionally unacceptable subject matter, such as stereotypes, becoming the basis of jokes. At times shocking, stereotype mockery can signify the comfortable self-ownership of a consumer, who might consider themselves a member of the sub-group at which they laugh. As casual attitudes and decreased sensitivity continue to grow, so too does the amount of risk a marketer or brand can take in capturing consumer attention.
