Looking Like a Flu-Sickened Mexican Will Help you Get a Seat in London’s Underground

That’s it! First it was Burger King, then South Park. And now Schweppes is reportedly using a sombrero-wearing Mexican fellow suffering from swine flu to pitch their ridiculously refreshing beverages! Wanna seat on the tube? Grab a box of kleenex and a giant sombrero and off you go!

(It is likely that this “ad” was born and lives only in the bowels of the Internet… but if it’s a real Schweppes campaign, I CANNOT wait for the ensuing outrage and lame apology by some agency!)

Pardon???!!!

Hat tip [pun intended] to my friend, Gutierritos

    hey! they stole my idea! i though it as a solution to clear out the movie theaters in Cannes… premiers get so crowded and there are people from all over the world… it would’ve been funny to yell in the middle of the theater VIVA MEXICO!! and then sneeze or cough…
