I used to watch TV news and yell at the box. Now I jump up from the couch, sit at the computer and begin to type laughing maniacally saying "Wait until they read this." It's more fun than squashing tadpoles

Absolut's Shortest Ad Champaign

Whoever the moron was that thought the "Absolut World" ad campaign was a good idea can't hold a candle to the nit wits who approved it. It took all of three days for the company to go into panic mode and cancel the ads.

"In no way was it meant to offend or disparage, nor does it advocate an altering of borders, nor does it lend support to any anti-American sentiment, nor does it reflect immigration issues," Absolut said in a statement left on its consumer inquiry phone line....

... "As a global company, we recognize that people in different parts of the world may lend different perspectives or interpret our ads in a different way than was intended in that market, and for that we apologize."

Nor does it help to sell vodka.

The Internet world is too fast for stupidity to survive long. Ask any politician.
