Absolut Mexico? No - Absolut-ly Wrong!
A new advertising campaign by Swedish vodka maker Absolut shows a North American map as it appeared before the Mexican-American war of 1848 where after the United States annexed what is now the southwestern states.
Are they serious? Did some ad exec come up with this idea after consuming vast quantities of the product? Or is it some open borders proponent's geopolitical fantasy?
This goes to show how multi-national companies are starting to view America. They must feel that our time is upon us to be showing this kind of disdain for our nation. Or are they just pandering to the illegals in America to gain a larger market share?
What next? Is Absolut going to advertise a map of the USA showing the Confederate States of America in the south?
