Really great CGI work. The concept is cool, but I don't agree with using Bruce's image with alcohol.

I wonder what Linda thinks of it.
40 years this Saturday. July 20, 1973. I had the newspaper clipping of his obit for years.

He probably would've been a Talisker 21 fan anyway.

He's taken up Drunken Master technique.

Bruce was a mushrooms man, he was flying hard and fast the whole time he was involved in movies, in fact during his cameo in Apocalypse Now he was said to have ingested a damn metric kilo of special Bhutanese weed-shrooms that enabled him to fly alongside the helicopters in that memorable scene where he sings Flight of the Valkyries in Swedish.
Crouching Tiger was a homage to Bruce's mushroom excesses, they just flew around that whole movie on crazy fungus.

Bruce Lee's been dead for 40 years?!? Time flies.

Obviously Shannon is ok with it (or they gave her sufficient remuneration to allay her concerns).

Johnny Walker is trying to get a foothold in a very lucrative market but the chinese think it's a cheap wannabe.  In Taipei you can get 750ml green label for less than 20USD at 7-11.  On Internet Wines.com it'll run $64

They have his smirk down pat but syncing the voice with mouth movements could do a little more work.

Che Guevara unavailable for comment.

He's too busy adorning the shirt of some upper-middle-class college student buying handmade crafts, imported from a communist country, at the artsy boutique with a credit card.

I don't think he would inject them, but if soembody told him they were ground up silk worms, or dehydrated yak balls he would be all over them.

'This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Diageo / Johnnie Walker'.    Think about that for a moment.  It's an advertisement, that people would need to WILLINGLY CLICK ON to watch, and you're preventing people from doing so.   An advertisement that in order to work, people would have to, you know, WATCH?  Insane!

Well, they started off in TFA by doing it wrong in the first place.
You think that company has any idea of what they are doing at all.\?
Obviously the Bruce Lee thing was in lieu of buying huge ad space all over stating what magnanimous assholes the entire management team is over at Johnny Walker.
While not wanting to be left out, the legal department called up advertising and said, "we have to put a stop to the people watching our ads, because if management is using the complete asshole model, the only way to protect our phony-bologna jobs here is to be bigger assholes. After all, we're lawyers".
So the moral of the story is, if you want to look like a magnanimous asshole, drink Johnny Walker.
You'll look like a Mad Man who would fark his secretary behind his wife's back and kick a dead martial artist to look like a bad ass.

Probably because they don't get traffic or other insight data when it's viewed on someone else's site.

The CGI work on the actor's face looks like shiat - nowhere close to the Audrey Hepburn chocolate commercial.  This looks like an intro clip for Grand Theft Auto or some other video game.

Have you ever watched a kaiju or kung fu movie? Asian people's lips do not move in synch with what they are saying.
