'Train of Death' hit: U.S. PR campaign backfires

Gee, whoda thunk that the ostensibly anti-immigration song "Train of Death" would be a big hit in Central America, whose illegal immigrants risk their lives to to reach the U.S.?

Then again, some Americans like "outlaw country" so I guess it's not that different.

So on the bad side it's yet another Big Guvmint boondoggle; on the bright side, the U.S. taxpayers are bringing quality, Spanish-language infotainment to at least 20 countries!  De nadagente!
