City Paper is not for tourists
Dan Snyder’s tuckered theme park chain, Six Flags, stands accused of running a racist ad campaign.
A new series of commercials for Six Flags features an Asian guy shouting “More Flags! More Fun!” and other things about flags. The spots were produced by Red Line Films, a company that made the 2005 boxing “moviementary,” “Cinderella Man,” and other programming for ESPN, the former employer of Snyder’s partner Mark Shapiro.
For those into counting degrees of separation: Before ever screaming about flags, Takeuchi had a bit part in “The Last Samurai,” a 2003 feature starring Snyder’s top Hollywood connection, Tom Cruise.
Keep the dial right here for all the breaking news in Snyder’s Six Flags soap opera.
