Is this the most racist ad ever made?

This Chinese commercial for laundry detergent is being labelled the most racist ad ever made.

In truly jaw-dropping scenes, the ad for Qiaobi washing powder opens with a woman loading her washing machine.

Suddenly, a black man covered in paint appears. He wolf-whistles and winks at the woman, who beckons him over.

As he nears his object of affection the woman shoves him into her top-loader.
She then sits atop the machine, waiting for the detergent to work its magic.

When the man emerges, he is no longer black but Chinese, and wearing a crisp white shirt.

Yep, that's right. The black man has been "cleaned" into a Chinese man.

Watch the ad and prepare to pick your jaw up off the floor.
