My 11 year old son told me this joke about a year ago. In his version it was just “a guy” who walked into the library. I laughed.
Now, seeing this video, I feel a bit annoyed. Not only has it become an ad for Mercedes (!!!), but instead of the humour coming from a fairly inoffensive notion of libraries in “popular culture”, we’re being invited to laugh specifically at social stereotypes. Shame really.
