At first it was Radio Shack now its Blockbuster.
Another newspaper has begun encouraging soccer fans to cast a voodoo hex on the United States ahead of Wednesday's World Cup qualifier in Columbus, Ohio.
Readers of the Record could trade in coupons for voodoo-doll likenesses of U.S. players at Blockbuster video stores in Mexico City on Friday. Fans were instructed to use the doll to wish for a Mexico goal.
"Hold a needle firmly between your thumb and index finger and ***** slowly the part of the doll where you want to affect the opponent," the instructions say. The back of the doll's jersey read, "Gringos."
U.S.-based electronics retailer RadioShack dropped out as a distribution partner last week after learning details of the campaign. But Record managed to find U.S.-based Blockbuster as a new co-sponsor.
