    Do you like Vodka? If you do and your preferred brand is Absolut, please consider a different brand. Check out their IN AN ABSOLUT WORLD ad campaign aimed at Mexican consumers.

    Never liked Absolut much, anyway. I'll stick with Ketel One.

    Interesting. I do like vodka, but Absolut is about my Absolut last choice to begin with.

    I definitely do not approve of the add though - so I believe I will be sending some comments to Mr. Moran.

    Thanks for the heads up bkt!

    Thanks to the doctors, I quit drinking this year, so it'll be easy to boycott these morons. For those of you that haven't heard, Absolut Vodka has just been bought out by Pernod Ricard in France from Sweden. So, this wonderful ad campaign which is coming to from New York, is from a French Vodka maker now. Don't it figure. (Won't be official till this summer.)

    Yep, never ared much for vodka. I've always been a Bud light or Jack Daniels kinda guy. In an Absolut world, they can shove that bottle up their as.

    No, of course not. I'm so silly for misinterpreting the ad and taking offense. Jackass. :mad:

    Try advertising booze in an Islamic country with the slogan "IN AN ABSOLUT WORLD: DEMOCRACY" and let me know how that works for your marketing team.

    These guys aren't the least bit sorry. They realize they stepped in it and they're making a tiny gesture to try to retain a sizable customer base (the U.S.).
