Spanish monkey ad sparks furore
BBC

The Spanish Student Union finds the poster "insulting"

With less than a month to go before Spain holds the EU's first referendum on the European Constitution, not everyone is happy with the campaign.

A row has erupted over an advert for Referendum Plus - a canned drink.

It is being handed out to people under 34 with the claim that it can inspire them to turn out on 20 February.

The poster, put out by the government-funded Youth Council, shows a monkey turning into a voter after downing the contents of the can.

1. Works in reverse here...
I have witnessed it myself, firsthand. After downing a few Pearl Lites, the average freep/Repube turns into a raving chimpanzee and the, runs for office.
