What To Say?

This is apparently an ad for Absolut that ran in Mexico, showing a world where the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo never existed and half of 'merica was in the hands of illegals.

There's so many ways to comment on this ad -- for one, how companies advertise to different populations. Much like seemingly every company in existence has a gay version of their ads for pride events (and then make every effort to hide these ads from the larger public), I'm guessing Absolut never really wanted Americans to see this ad.

Or outside of advertising, it's a great visual of how ridiculous the argument over "illegal" immigration is, showing how much of our country was actually Mexican territory only a short while ago.

In any event, no one tell Lou Dobbs about this ad...
