The commercials featuring the Starburst "Scottish Koreans" are back, still pushing the angle of "contradiction". This time they are joined on a bus by an undead passenger.

The Starburst "Scottish Koreans" commercial has been drawing plenty of laughs, but also the ire of some who say the Scottish/Korean contradiction idea has a controversial basis. Others simply find kilted Koreans with Scottish accents hilarious. Check out the video and judge for yourself.
