Perhaps One of the Most Bizarre Mexican Ads We Have Ever Seen

Leave it to the fabulosa Laura Martínez to keep us in the know about what is one bizarre ad campaign:

Laura’s tweet took us to this post, which she wrote: “Come to Mexico: We’ll Put you in a Nice Hotel, and have Indians Dance Around you:”

The latest campaign promoting Oaxaca’s famed Guelaguetza Dance Festival trumps over any other cringeworthy images depicting my country’s relationship with its Indians.

As the video explains, while we see our cosmopolitan digital-savvy protagonist celebrate her touristic elitism.

Do we really need to explain what is so uncomfortable about this?
