Anyone else read that authors name as 'Shiathole' and do a double take?

/"you changed your name to 'Latrine'?"
//"yeah, it used to be 'Shiathouse'!"
///I'll go pick up my reading materials now :(

Subby, Bell's makes whisky, not whiskey

So it shows how whiskey ruins your health, relationships, and life?
Awesome.

It did the same thing to me that whiskey does.

*sniffle*

Very similar to this.

Tugging at the heart strings, no fair!

It's a marketing project that plays off people's emotions to generate revenue.

Color me shocked.

That's exactly what it showed. It was the worst advertisement for liquor in history.

Hotigneous Intruder sounds like someone who can't handle their liquor.

It's about 2 girls who sweetly and slowly discover their sexuality?

If you watch it in reverse, it's the story of a man who drinks Scotch and promptly becomes estranged from his son and then forgets how to read.

Someone could have just given him the audiobook version.  Saved a crapload of effort.

Dammit, whisky isn't supposed to make me cry.

Thank you, this comment is awesome.  That is all.

at least it is very well done. Also if on TV and little kids see it they only think it's "learn how to read" win/win

Either way, it still tugs at the heart and is ripe for Oscar gold.

Yeah, this. Any Scrabble player knows that word. Plus "qat", an essential q-without-a-u word.

But then, he would have one less reason to get loaded on Bell's.

One thing is most AESL (Adult English as a Second Language) students don't learn using children's books - they learn with special material written for  them. They might sound like children's books but they're not stories about puppies.  Still, I do understand the joy. I helped several adults learn to read, or read better, and this commercial made me smile.

See kids? Reading leads to drug use.

Did he know a little German?
