Have a Shot of Vodka and Chill Out

Absolute Vodka has stirred up a tempest among some Americans with this advertisement it ran in Mexico.
The ad depicts North America's borders as they were before the 1848 Mexican-American War, that is before the US conquered and seized California and most of what it now calls the American southwest.
Absolut has been barraged by angry American vodka fans mainly slagging the company on the internet.
