Gdalescrboz: "The lawsuit claimes your product encourages minors to drink alcohol therefor you are responsible for the deaths of 5 minors who who driving intoxicated. We will settle for $25million or we can take this to court where we will doup some jury into awarding us $100million by showing them pictures of dead babies and appealing to their emotions rather than facts."Yeah, in this day and age I wouldn't want my product promoting anything I specifically endorse
HotWingAgenda: /lol, beer can
What_Would_Jimi_Do: i havent seen the movie, but doesn't the drunk dude save lives? i say go fark yourselves.
mikewadestr: My understanding of the film is that the guy would have crashed the plane if he wasn't drunk. Go Budweser! Drink and fly straight.
Gyrfalcon: Whatever. Call me when they don't want their precious trademarks associated with, say James Bond or Batman.
moothemagiccow: Gyrfalcon: Whatever. Call me when they don't want their precious trademarks associated with, say James Bond or Batman.Hey, he may be a womanizing murderer, but don't you want to be him, I mean, he gets lots of ass and probably has herpes and occasional PTSD but he sure looks good in a tuxedo.
Psycat: Considering how much money Anheuser-Busch spent over the years to keep pot illegal, I consider this karmic retribution...
Haliburton Cummings: (citation needed)
How about just a disclaimer:
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO FLY PASSENGER JETS UPSIDE-DOWN AFTER DRINKING BUDWEISER!That's something better left for Coors drinkers.
stonicus: FTFA: Dougherty and Mark Partridge, a Chicago intellectual property lawyer, also noted that a court rejected an effort to get by Caterpillar Inc. to get its logo removed from tractors driven by the villains in 2003's "George of the Jungle 2." The company had argued its trademark was harmed by having its product associated with the film's villains.I would bet my life that not one single person who was going to buy a Caterpillar vehicle didn't because of its inclusion in George of the Jungle 2.
cygnusx13: You can get drunk off Bud? I thought you could only get IBS./the more you know.
What_Would_Jimi_Do: HotWingAgenda: /lol, beer canpeople make fun of beer in a can. the guinness cans are pretty good.
Gdalescrboz: HotWingAgendaWould they win that lawsuit? In todays world, probably. But even if they didnt Budweiser would spend a fortune defending themselves. They are just trying to stop it before it happens
