WATCH: Is this the most racist (and sexist) advert ever?

Washing powder adverts are not exactly renowned for their creativity, but they're usually pretty innocuous.

Not this one for Qiaobi laundry detergent, however.  The Chinese ad shows a black man being thrown into a washing machine by a Chinese woman before emerging as a Chinese man.

The ad kicks off with the man arriving into the kitchen with paint splashes on his face and he wolf-whistles at the woman who is filling her washing machine.

They kiss and then she pushes a laundry detergent tablet into his mouth and tosses him into the machine where he can be heard shouting in pain as she sits on top and smiles.

When he emerges his t-shirt is perfectly white and he has changed from black to Chinese, which is clearly very pleasing to the woman.

The ad has gone viral, with many dubbing it the "most racist" ad ever.

Check it out above.
