Ad Turns ‘This Land Is Your Land’ Into The Immigrant Anthem This Country Needs

Johnnie Walker is reminding Americans that this is a land for immigrants.

The Scotch whisky brand went to Los Angeles Chicano Batman for their latest ad, created for the companys Keep Walking America marketing campaign. In the spot, the Latino four-piece band reinterprets Woody Guthries iconic folk song This Land Is Your Land as an immigrant anthem.

This songs message has never been more timely, and we hope our version continues to inspire people to keep walking towards their dreams and to celebrate each other, Chicano Batman frontman Bardo Martinez said in a press release.

The music video, which doubles as an ad for the brand, is meant to take viewers into Chicano Batmans community in Los Angeles. And the new version of the song includes a line in Spanish, which translates to:

Theres no one that can stop me on the way to liberty. Theres no one who can make me go back, this land is for you and for me.

Chicano Batman, and immigrants, are here to stay.
