    "I have poured the remainder of my Absolut bottles down the sink," one blogger wrote.


    Yeah, you show them! Take that product which you have already paid for and flush it! That way, when you forget about this in 3 weeks you'll have to go to the store to buy more Absolut...genius! :no:

    The advantage is that now that the Absolute is poured down the sink, it will be harder to forget about. :wink:

    I thought it was nothing to get excited about when I saw it.

    A few years ago their was a billboard put up in LA that caused a lot of controversy. I never thought it was a big deal but their were a lot of protests about it.

    Arnold: L.A. billboard should come down

    I thought it was pretty clever.

    People are FAR too sensitive about immigration.

    Also, Absolut is pretty crap vodak.

    I would agree that people speak ignorantly about immigration and sometimes get scared for the wrong reasons, but a statement like the above is just asking for a response.

    I know plenty of people that try to get into this country legally and are denied, while many think it is ok to have people pour over our borders illegally. I don't want to get into it, and the ad actually is kind of funny, but it is a sensitive issue for good reason. Almost all of us descended from immigrants, so it is obvious that immigration in itself is not a problem, but the way it has been handled in the last 30 or so years has been horrible.

    Anyone think the EMC building downtown Des Moines was originally designed to be an Absolut Ad?
