Absolut ad - shows part of USA being Mexico.

Recommended Posts

Wow. What a horrible idea by Absolut marketing. I can't believe there wasn't one person that saw this before it's release and said "ya know maybe this isn't the best idea for an ad".

The map is an Old 1820's map.  That is what things looked like before Texas broke free from Mexico and the U.S./Mexico War (happened right before the Civil War).  NOt the best of Maps to use in any Ad campaign but you don't see it very often.

Well considering the way things are going I wouldn't be surprised when the whole map is green.  It' pretty much getting that way now. Can't go anywhere any more without a bunch of illegals all over the place.

Panama didn't gain independence from Colombia until the 1900s. It is not a historical map per se, it is a map showing what it would be like if the United States had not taken/bought   all that land from Mexico.

I don't really see what the big deal is.... Americans are quite foggy when it comes to history.

I believe they estimated that there are 20 million illegals in the USA.

A couple of thoughts on this subject:

My family has been in this country for over 200 years now, but even we came from somewhere else.

I have had over 150 employees in the last 12 years and I now have this employment policy.  If you were born in this country and under 30 I will NOT hire you.  You are most likely arrogant, lazy, no work ethic, and want to be paid premium dollars for very little effort.

That is just wrong, sorry. Is that little policy of yours even legal? ::) :-?

Your family probably came here LEGALLY (like mine). ;)

As for your employment policy, have you considered outsourcing your business to another country? That way you wouldn't have to worry about hiring any of us young legal American citizens. ;D
