Did They Not Realize That Americans Would Find Out About This?

Swedish-based Absolut Vodka has launched an ad campaign featuring a map of Mexico prior to Texas independence and the slogan "In an Absolut World." The Rottweiler has an image taken from a Monterrey billboard, and
Gateway Pundit has an magazine ad version of the image.

A commenter at the latter site says this:

I think Tuborg or Carlsberg needs to come out with an ad showing Sweden as part of Denmark (which it used to be). "In a Tuborg world...."

Consider it done..



Note that the lettering is red like the Denmark flag.

(Map souce: Historical Map of Europe: 1000AD - found here. It was a good year for Norway, too.)

Update: Maybe this is a mere coincidence, but at the time that the map in the ad was valid, Norway was under Swedish rule. Absolut world, indeed.

Update: There's another problem with that Absolut map - see above post.
