UPDATE: The video in question has since been removed as a result of the controversy. Read more here.

Click on the video above and say hello to Raj. Or rather: Ashton Kutcher. Made-up and dressed up. As an Asian man called Raj.

It's all there - the 'comedy' Indian accent, the 'comedy' Bollywood-style dancing. Yes, if you miss the days of Curry And Chips, in which Spike Milligan played an Asian immigrant, or The Party, in which Peter Sellers played a comedy Indian doctor, then fear not! For they have clearly returned.

Or are we being over-sensitive? Is Kutcher's spoof dating video (one of a series of ads for Popchips, "the greatest new snack to hit the market") just a bit of harmless fun? Vote in our poll and tell us what you think in the comments below.
