The World Peace/Anti Mexican Drug War ad refers to a lost commercial from the Telemundo Costa Central channel (a Spanish-speaking channel in the U.S. dedicated to broadcasting and producing content like telenovelas and news to Spanish-speaking citizens in the Costa Central part of California) that aired between 2008 to 2010 and seemed to have had an "anti-war" theme to it.


  • The ad was transmitted in the area of Santa Barbara in California.
  • The ad was broadcasted late at night around the 9pm to 1am time.
  • The ad had an Opera-like song in the background with high notes and a deep voice (a good comparison could be the start of the song “Waka Waka” by Shakira). The music then changes from an Opera-like to an action movie-like song, which would cut one more time to the "Tank Man" video from the Tiananmen Protest in China and other videos from real life political and historical events are shown.
  • The ad starts showing images and videos with text in-between. Images were apparent to be show Gandhi and various other undisclosed and unknown figures and people.
  • The music then changes from an Opera to an Action Movie type song and from there the video cuts to the "Tank Man" video from the Tienanmen Protest in China and some other videos from real life events are shown.


The ad was produced during the Mexican Drug War (sometimes called the Calderon vs Narcotrafficking war) of 2006 to 2012 that made various big cartels split into various smaller cartels. This is the most possible theory due to the timeline and the location in which the ad was broadcasted. There are other theories that the ad was produced due to the Trans Saharan war that started in 2007 which was made and targeted for families of soldiers which are at the Trans Saharan war. Another theory suggests that the ad was simply produced for kids to learn about how war can produce conflicts, however, this theory is the most improbable out of the three since the ad was broadcasted at very late hours and would be unlikely made for kids to consume and watch.
