Just a reblog today, to point those who might be interested towards a new blog on the topic of indigenous Mexican practices. Specifically the Mexica traditions, that is the traditions of the people most know as the Aztecs. Check it out if you’re interested.

The man is shocked and is then shown to put the wrapper into the bin, at which point the advertisement ends.
