Mexico Is so Independent, Even Its Coke Bottles Feature Native-Looking Women and Colorful Stuff

Oh dear. I wish I could say this is just a bad Internet joke but, well, it isn’t.

Starting this weekend, you will start to see a lot of marketing crap stuff around Mexico’s Independence Bicentennial, including the Coca-Cola Special Bicentennial Edition, consisting of 31 collectible bottles representing each one of Mexico’s 31 states. Because, how else to celebrate our country’s independence than with a good, refreshing ol’ coca?

Como dijo Don Porfirio: Poor Mexico… So far from God, and so close to the United States!
