    Ouch.
    I used to drink that stuff.


    Probably not a very smart move on thier part.
    Bet they see a huge drop off in sales as the American (drunk) public shift to another brand.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Why not?

    How is showing a historical map offensive?
    OR is it assumed that when Europeans came to North America it was all their land by birthright and they didn't have to fight anyone to claim it?

    "Absolut's maker said on Sunday the ad campaign would cease."

    Case closed. I don't feel like arguing with you today.

    Fair enough, but it doesn't make it any less ridiculous that people would get offended by this.

    You'd think that people would have better things to do that get their panties all scrunched up about an ad that doesn't even appear in this country.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!
