This is very entertaining.

That is hilarious. Think fast, HP.

Oh gosh that is too funny.
I'm so glad I'm not HP right now.

HP got a product to market that they couldn't foresee one single person of color using? Maybe they are racist. Or programming for the Hallmark channel.

There are other possibilities. Rather than being racist, HP might simply have not had any dark skinned employees to test it on. It might also be a technical issue. They all do look alike after all.

Eh, it's HP. They make poo products anyway.

They probably tested it in a photo studio setting with perfect lighting. They have plenty of dark skinned people working there.

Calling HP Lovecraft racist seems so unfair. Cthulu destroys with no regard to race.

I think the people making the video are laughing because they know HP is not racist, just incompetent. That's what makes it funny and not offensive.
