Personally an ad featuring a sexy woman isn't get gonna get me to buy a beer, I buy beer that I enjoy, not because of some person telling me to buy it. But I don't complain, enjoy the ads, and yes remember the beer and quite possibly bring the beer/the ads into a/many conversation(s). After all that, does it work? you tell me.

Why them dont use men to advertise what them does drink.

Wow, that is articulate, no quotation marks, no question mark, no grammar. This article is terrible
 
2003-05-30 07:40:01 PM
SSSSHHH! If they find out, they'll stop putting hot babes on beer commercials!
 
2003-05-30 07:48:24 PM
I think it done be written in Rasta, by an' by.
 
2003-05-30 07:56:21 PM
How funny. I don't even drink beer and I'm not susceptible to those ads, either!

Hytes
don't...drink...beer? My limited capacity leads me to assume you drink nothing less than 80 proof Vodka, or better yet, 12-year-old Scotch. By an' by.

to me, nothing is more un-sexy than the types of girls in beer commercials. They just dont do anything for me.
 
2003-05-30 11:38:39 PM
AIIYYEE! Article it does my head hurt read to.
 
2003-05-30 11:38:43 PM
MY EYES! THE BOOBIES...THEY DO NOTHING!
 
2003-05-30 11:40:24 PM
where are the boobies links lately?
 
2003-05-30 11:41:23 PM
I work in advertising and drinking beebies doesn't make me want to buy certain types of boob.
 
2003-05-30 11:42:20 PM
I couldn't get through the article. Terribly written. But I still don't mind the hot babes in beer ads. They just don't make me want to drink nasty beer.
 
2003-05-30 11:42:30 PM
Worst. Written. Article. Ever.
 
2003-05-30 11:44:07 PM
A crappy beer is a crappy beer regardless of how hot the girl holding it is.

Bud and Bud Light make funny beer commercials but it still tastes terrible.

The twins in the Coors (or Coors variant) commercial are ultra yummy but I still don't like Coors (or Coors variants).

I'll stick with Corona. No matter who their spokesmodel may be.

Is this how they write & speak in the Barbados?!?

What ever happened to the Queen's English? THE QUEEN'S ENGLISH!!

In live in Los Angeles, and I go to a lot of Hollywood parties. Nothing is more dissapointed than to be talking to a cute girl, and hear her say, "im an actress/model/dancer"

Women dont seem to understand that the sexiest thing is a pretty girl, who is actually good at doing something else besides just being pretty. Sure, good looks will get you noticed. But I have never absolutely had to have a girl who could only be just pretty.
 
2003-05-30 11:48:12 PM
(cut off the rest of my diatribe)

which is why these beer commercials dont work. How common are those girls? Especially on TV?

Like i said, they do nothing for me.

The writer of the article is obviously not a native user of English, and, in the sentence that you pasted into your thread, where do the quotation marks belong? haha aho

When it comes to choosing a beer, I usually go for whatever my biggest, smelliest friend tells me to drink.

Probably because he's likely to drink the most beer.

Has worked for me thus far.

Depending on the timing, beer drinkers can be swayed by ugly women as well.

grivas is of course sober and not susceptable to suggestive feminine wiles.

If you want to be a real man,
you'll drink the beer NASCAR tells you to drink.
You ain't one of them thar college boys, is ya?

ah yes but would not you drink it if she asked you to share with her???
 
2003-05-31 12:00:07 AM
I buy the beer I can afford. The sexiest thing to me when loping down the booze aisle is a discounted case. The second sexist is the check out girl with that streak of henna in her hair, high cheek bones, and an eye crinkling smile.... *sigh* I wish I were twenty years younger.

the only time i can remember that i was actively influenced by a beer commercial was a few of them for Amstel Light.. i wanted beer and saw a few commercials during a game and thought "i'll give it a try".. and hey, it wasnt bad.

i think commercials these days dont focus on the product anymore, but rather the production of delivering you the commercial itself. :(

I like to drink 10 beers and then switch to vodka/orange until i run out.

/Still no cure for cancer should be banned, it aint funny anymore dipshiat

The letter to the editor was more articulate than this article. I wonder if the editor could understand it?
 
2003-05-31 12:15:39 AM
ah yes but would not you drink it if she asked you to share with her???


Absolutely. I am after all still diven by weener.

I'd even drink non-alcoholic beer if a hot girl asked me to share it with her. That's just the price I'm willing to pay when a hot sexy babe is personally involved.

I guess I'll cross that bridge if I ever come to it. [/not likely]

excellent! because you see when applying standards to things you really must make sure that you never put the flavor of a beer before the potential for knocking boots you know. that would just be silly and wrong.

i wish i had a beer now. let me go check....
 
2003-05-31 12:23:57 AM
Those Miller Lite girls are smoking HOT but I'll still drink a GUINNESS any day of the week. I've noticed I like the Miller Lite girls more after a few Guinness' too.

Does marketing even do anything aside from making you aware a product exists? I mean I buy stuff normally because that is what I had growing up. My family bought Pepsi growing up, I drink Pepsi now. I don't buy Pepsi because of anything in their commericials. All commericials do is piss me off at their idiocy.

And I've been sitting here waiting for the coors light party to start. You're telling me they lied?
BTW, as bad as his writing skills are, it kind of made me feel like I was on the beach talking to the locals.

Speaking of sexy women... BOOBIES!

A girl after my own heart. Never say men don't prioritize properly. Least this one.

Unfortunately for me, I "beered" out a couple hours ago. This funky new green 7-Up and vanilla vodka combo is pretty tasty though.

What the hell happened here? Newspapers were the LAST remaing source of pure unadulterated English. Has the world gone mad? Goddamnit. Maybe Pat Buchannan was right - time to legislate that every-damn-body learn to speak English

Farkers, I NEED HELP! I am trying to download the STAR WARS KID videos. Unfortunately, they are not working for me. I'm not sure what's wrong. I've got the latest version of Windows Media Player but it's still not working. Alas, streaming doesn't work for me as I'm not on high speed. All I need is a good copy of the video on MPEG or some other format that Quicktime or Realplayer can play. This vid looks so goddamn funny. Please help me! Someone? Anyone?

Broadhead, try downloading Irfanview and see if it'll play it for you.

DutchDynamite: thanks! There really needs to be a daily thread solely dedicated with commenting on/farking the "personal of the day" model.
