I have a lot of problems with this. First, the name,
second the fact they show Guinness being splashed and WASTED.
and third, they don't show the recipe for the shot glass.
Well as someone who HAS had a friend disfigured and their life wrecked by a car bomb in the North of Ireland I find the name offensive and not in the least bit clever. This isn't about being politically correct or having a sense of humour; it's just offensive and wrong.

It's understandable that the name of the drink may be offensive to someone who has lost family/friends to such a device, or had to live through the "troubles" of Northern Ireland in the later half of the last decade, its nothing to do with how "fun" the drink is. Insult is perceived by the receiver.
political correctness is out of f.cking control!!! It is a great, fun drink, not a political friggen statement!!
This is a timeless drink. There are no racial, derogatory, or insulting meaning... It is what it is.. Irish drinks combined and consumed quickly. If you are the type of person that finds the negative in everything, then clearly drinking is not for you! I don't drink with mean drunks, I don't speak with negative people... If you want bad news all time, watch tv around 5 o'clock, the local news I plenty enough to satisfy your depression needs!
And on a positive note, it's a great drink. Gets the party started and is even better with a dr pepper (just a taste) afterwards. I'd love to mention the hick comment, misspelled words and all sorts of positivity, makes me smile. I'd buy you a drink if I could. And yes, I just might make a shot for ISIS, maybe, I'll call it, "bullet with your name on it"..and yes, there will be some American spirits in it!
It's the name of a frikin drink, my favorite drink is racist : two hicks and a sick chasing a turkey down a gold mine. No I didn't make that up. The point is that it's a frikin drink not a political correctness compitition, I've hears of this drink for years! Way befor I was even leagal, he'll there is a red neck car bomb also! People need to get over them selves ,stop correcting everyone else and take a look at your own Frick ups.
Irish. Car. Bomb. So rare to be utterly offended by three simple words. Who is the lame-brained idiot to think this up? I have a great idea for a name, and it's only two words: Jihadi Beheading! or how about a Southern Lynching, a DWB (Driving While Black), or the varient, WWB (Walking While Black), or the more universal BWB (Breathing While Black). There’re lots of options, someone develop the Fag Bash (something fruity to be sure), and sure to be popular among the ladies, the Coathanger, says it all in one word. Catchy. Irish Car Bomb! Cannot wait for the next in this genius series of installments.
This name isn't nearly as cute as you seem to think it is.
Think you know the booze? Let’s start with some basics.
