"By the way, while Washington was weighed down with that tired old caricature of an Indian head on their helmets, Seattle was sporting a lighthearted Seahawk based on an ancient Northwest Coast Native carved totem design. They didn’t just score more touchdowns; they won on style points, too." "What's in a Name? The Redskins' Bad Karma" Courtland Miloy

This is one of my favorite advertisements of all time. It was a part of a 2008 Absolut Vodka billboard and press campaign in Mexico. Its great social commentary in a time when states like Texas and Arizona are "demanding their country back" with anti-immigrant and Latino legislation. The ad was eventually withdrawn after complaints from offended Americans for its depiction of an actual map from 1830. The international agency responsible, Teran/TBWA, is best known for the Taco Bell Chihuahua campaign.
