Did they think cause it was only published in Mexico City that it would not be noticed north of the border? This has to be the stupidest thing I have ever scene. Pandering hits a new low in the advertising world. GuardDog


This print ad was taken from the current issue of Quién magazine, in Mexico City.

Absolut Reconquista
Michelle Malkin
April 2, 2008

The beverage of open-borders used to be Miller Light. Now, it is Absolut. The vodka maker?s latest ad redraws the map of North America to please Mexican consumers. (Hat tip - Snapped Shot and Jim Hoft).

Reconquista? What reconquista? Oh, yeah. That reconquista:

The ?In An Absolut World? ad campaign site is here.

Laura Martinez, who apparently approves, spotted the Absolut open-borders ad in the print edition of Quien magazine. (Check out comments section of this link. The majority of comments are angry and negative. GuardDog)

    Oh my…….so they are sneaking the concept in psychologically through advertising. That way when it happens you’ve already been conditioned for it.

    THIS ALSO MAKES MY BLOOD BOIL. COLLEGE KID CHARGE WITH TAKING DOWN THE BUZZARD RAG.

    I think that this is much worse than what Miller Beer did.

  3. K2 says:

    Nah. Encourage it. Get the damned promo set up in the USA. Lots and lots and lots of exposure. Promise Absolut free advertising. Tell them to ignore La Raza’s protests… that they hate vodka anyway. Get some magazine or periodical to print photos of people taking their pictures in front of the billboards, with a thumbs-up, and a smile. Embrace it. This is awesome. You couldn’t buy better education for the witless. Once you get the mileage out of it, THEN Boycott the scum

    I was born and raised end educated in Mexico, this has got to be the biggest sour grapes ad ever. We lost tons of what was then OUR territory, because we were weak, stupid and corrupt, no one in Mexico cared about 2/3 of the old Nueva Espana until after they discovered gold in California and no one in Mexico cared about that territory untli the USA built it up with roads, cities, towns, services, industry in the early 20th century. Guess what, it?s the 21st century and Mexico is still weak, stupid and corrupt, socially, economically and govermentally. Instead of wroking to build a great society, instead of mexican society working as a team and building a 1st class country with the tons of human an natural resources we have, we covet jealously what we could have had, what the USA became and is, it because the Americans are smart and they have their checks and balances socially, politically and economically they built an empire out of 13 piece of dirt colonies, the Spaniards gave us an empire in term of land and as a society we pissed it away, the problem is that mexican never look at themselves as the problem, which we are, naturally we always look at some one else to blame for our own failings.

    We suck as a culture, we suck as a society, we suck as a country, were a third rate wannabe leftist dictatorship aka a latina american democracy that can never get it?s act straight. I had the good fortune of marrying into an American family that embraced me regardless of my origins these social and political conservatives are some of the most generous and hard working people and some of the closest nit humans you will find, I am lucky to have left Mexico, and I will never return to Mexico, I will die for the USA and my sons will die for the USA because it has given me everything.

    What has Mexico ever given me? Nada.

    #5. Boy, I’m so glad she wrote that. At last, someone with brains.

    Now, I just wish more people over here (including my own family) would get some brains and realize there’s a serious problem going on.

    As for this ad, I am so disgusted. Did they really think the word wasn’t going to get out about this?

    Everytime I think I’ve seen everything, something like the above ad image comes along . . .

    Absolut must be trying really hard to break into the tequila-drinking market. What is the ad actually trying to say? Get drunk and dream about the good old days when all that green territory was yours? Get drunk and proclaim to the nearest gringo - “This is our land, you stole our land!!”?

    That ad has a real Bernays-like social engineering tinge to it. What’s wrong with those Swedes - they can’t just make vodka and leave it at that?

    Interesting words from Fabricio.

    OH MY GOD!

    This is ABSOLUTE BULLSHIT!

    Sorry for the foul language Watchdog, but this has my blood boiling. I have already mailed a scathing email to Absolute Spirits, INC. We are not buying Absolute Vodka anymore. Also, I will be calling Absolute’s Public Relations in New York to give them a piece of my mind.

    This is just unbelievable. GRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!! I am upset!!!!
