Was talking this weekend about the legacy of the Mental Sorbet, the feature in which we try to give you something odd, wonderful or both to kick start your work week. I was told by my drinking buddy Big Dub that he missed the feature. We haven’t been doing them just because of time restrictions and, though we enjoyed them, they just didn’t spawn a lot of traffic. So if you enjoy these, throw some traffic this way and maybe we can bring it back semi-regularly. Regardless, this week it’s dedicated to mad alcohol alchemist Big Dub. Enjoy.
Given that as a launching spot, it seemed like a no-brainer to explore some fine examples of vintage beer commercials. The most obvious example is Fred and Barney shilling for Busch beer…but we’ve already posted that. So we had to get slightly more creative. Slightly.
We begin with this: how do you know you’re pretty damn lazy? When the selling point for you is that the beer has a handy dandy handle. I guess portability technology was new back in 1960.
