I'm not a beer drinker, but this doesn't mean that I don't appreciate the stuff . . . specifically, the creativity of the advertisements for it. I talked about beer ads in the Goddamn Opera Paper, for instance. Somehow, beer companies seem to attract advertising's best and brightest.

And so . . . for anyone who loved the Epic Battle Scenes™ of The Lord of the Rings . . . for anyone who thinks that Carl Orff's Carmina Burana is one of the twentieth century's most entertaining works, regardless of its faint whiff of fascism . . . for anyone who has ever been amused/appalled in equal measures at the lengths that corporations will go to in order to sell fermented hops . . .

Their Flashdance ad is only mildly less entertaining.

Oh, hilarious!

I must go watch it again.

Seeing this just totally made my hot, sultry* July Sunday.

*Now you know what I mean when I use those terms!

That is a great ad! I love it. :-)

If I liked beer, I'd be buying that brand. But I don't. So I won't. But I will appreciate the commercial.

... Sorry.

Yeah, that's about the long and the short of it.

hahahaha It's very forthright, too. "This ad had better sell some bloody beer!"
Jul. 6th, 2008 09:22 pm (UTC)
You know, I hope they did sell some bloody beer with that ad.

*is impressed*

I'm currently on my third re-watch of it, and have sent it to my brother who loves beer ads. THanks for sharing it.

It just doesn't get old, does it?
