While watching a baseball game today, I saw this ad several times. It was for Miller Lite, I believe. The point of the ad was that the beer came in a "punch top can". WTF? It's a commercial advocating shotgunning beer. Our beer is so bad, now it's easier to get it down faster!


Yup, and it's an intentional business strategy. The faster and smoother a beer goes down, the more you are likely to drink. It's the same thinking that gave us "wide mouth" cans.

It's kinda sad that I like the Stella Artois ad music and Heineken ads more than the beverages themselves. I've tried the beers, but just haven't found the ecstacy I'm supposed to find. ::shrug::

Have there been any new Red Stripe ads? Those were fun! Yay Beer!

Wait, what? You mean the kind where you use an opener to put holes in it instead of a pull tab? My my, what'll they think of next?

There's a regular tab but also a spot you puncture with whatever implement is handy. The air flow makes the beer come out more smoothly and quicker.

Seems like a waste of innovation department time

For some reason the combination of the words Bud Light Platinum makes me feel hungover without even drinking...

I don't like beer, but those ads for that apple stuff make me want to go out and buy some. And yet when I voice it...Yeasty Apple Beer....ew. It just looks so good.

It kinda tastes like wine. I haaaaate beer but it wasn't bad. The advertising sorta worked because the ads are what made me try it but my friend brought me one from her bar, I didn't pay for it.

If anyone tries the apple ale and has also had hard cider please report! Are they similar, the same, totally different?
