UPDATE: Michelle has an update here. What a bunch of Absolut asses.
Michelle Malkin’s got the story on this Absolut Reconquista ad campaign by the Swedish piss maker that is pandering to impoverished, blame-America Mexicans to sell some rot gut. Check out Michelle’s site for a billboard featuring this ad.
Bottom line: We never drank this crap, and we sure as hell won’t now. How Absolut-ly stupid can you be? Are you this brain dead because you’ve consumed too much of your own poison?
Screw you, Absolut.

This blog apparently likes the “ad,” but the comments are where the fun is:

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, itâ€™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 itâ€™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.

You cannot even travel safely there.
The whole Mexican country is run by rich elitist thugs that ship their poverty stricken poor to the USA as a cash crop.
For 300 years Mexico has been a dirt poor backwards country because of rotten Government and rotten people in Government living off the backs of the poor.
Mexico has huge oil reserves but much of the money for the oil disappears into private bank accounts. Drug cartels run much of the country.
No, we wonâ€™t ever be visiting that poverty stricken backwards country and we sure wonâ€™t be buying Absolut Vodak.

Shame on the author of this site. People like you are the reason some Americans think all Mexicans hate The United States. Iâ€™m proud my family left Mexico, apparently they are a lot smarter than some of the bunch. Now that theyâ€™re here, they are hard working, tax paying LEGAL citizens grateful to the country that afforded them more opportunity than Mexico ever could. I accept that people like you truly believe this radical junk, but I donâ€™t have to respect it. Grow up and use your brain. Viva Estados Unidos
