Ashton Kutcher impersonates Karl Lagerfeld - must watch!
Proving that he does still have a few laughs left in him despite the flop that Two and a Half Men has quickly become (sorry but Charlie was better), Ashton Kutcher is back to his funny ways. This time he is impersonating Karl Lagerfeld in a new comic web video series to help promote Popchips.
Playing 'Darl,' Ashton spoofs the Chanel designer for a fake dating website called worldwidelovers.com. Complete with Lagerfeld's signature pale face, white ponytail, sunglasses and Count Dracula clothing, Ashton takes off the designer quite well. He also throws in a pet Chihuahua for extra laughs.
In addition to 'Darl,' Ashton also plays three other characters 'Swordfish' a bikie who has a sensitive side, 'Nigel' a tree-loving hippie, and 'Raj' a Bollywood film director.
As amusing as they are, the videos have sparked controversy with Ashton accused of racism for impersonating an Indian man. The internet has fired up over his portrayal of Raj the Bollywood director with his painted brown face and exaggerated accent. However a rep for Popchips has been quick to deny any racist intentions.
"The new popchips worldwide dating video and ad campaign featuring four characters was created to provoke a few laughs and was never intended to stereotype or offend anyone. At Popchips we embrace all types of shapes, flavours and colours, and appreciate all snackers, no matter their race or ethnicity. We hope people can enjoy this in the spirit it was intended."
