11455: Advertising Week Peek 4.

Given that Advertising Week 2013 takes place during Hispanic Heritage Month, perhaps there should be a special acknowledgement to commemorate the occasion. Why, just think of the many great advertising icons that saluted Latino culture over the years.

The Frito Bandito illegally crossed the border long before it became a political issue—all for a handful of those irresistible corn chips.

The Taco Bell Chihuahua brought authenticity to the fast food chain, leading the way for later tortilla trailblazers such as Chef Lorena Garcia.

And the Talking Latina Vagina for Summer’s Eve shattered stereotypes and opened doors for cartoon coochies everywhere.

Of course, celebratory Advertising Week parties will extend invitations to Salma Hayek and Sofia Vergara.
