Marketing geniuses have given us culturally-relevant Hispanic cheese; deliciously weird tortilla-flavored chocolates, Mexican Coca-Cola and even a Hispanic lettuce. So it was really just a matter of time before somebody came up with a Hispanic tuna.
And that day, my friends, has finally arrived.

¡Chunta-chunta-chunta-chún, vamos a comer atún!

Remember Southwest’s unusual plan to show respect and appreciation for us, the Hispanics?
Well, here’s what went down at some point, during the celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month in the Hispanic-friendly skies…
