Burger King's latest ad promo is for the Texican Whopper, billed as "The taste of Texas, with a little, spicy Mexican". As you can see, the 'Texas' part of the equation is represented by a lanky Texas cowboy, while the 'little, spicy Mexican' is none other than a luchador little person.
This has the Mexican ambassador to Spain's wrestling tights in a bind (the ad is currently only showing in Europe) as he claims it purports negative Mexican stereotypes.
Not sure what negative stereotypes he's referring to, because little spicy Mexican luchadores are awesome. I think I'm a fan of 'El Cachito', as he appears to be named. I like that Rey Mysterio style mask, and of course, the colors! What do you think?
