I'm guessing it took a lot of work to make it look this effortless.

Of course this makes sense; they are using Old Milwaukee.

I said a beer, not Old Milwaukee!

I related best to their refusal to drink that "beer."

The large wet patches on the ground suggest that this isn't something you do in just one take.

The mustachioed salaryman's wanton and messy can opening is strangely satisfying, almost erotically so. Now please excuse me while I go clean the entire apartment.

I wonder what the fun to frustration ratio was for that shoot.

I am unfamiliar with many of your American "beers", but this seems like a waste of piss.
Very funny though.
It reminded me of Sabotage (or Funky Squad).

I am impressed at the laundry that must have been involved to have their shitty office uniforms appear dry in every shot.

Is there something new here that we haven't seen a hundred times? Or did FoD suddenly discover the "very good day" video meme?

I like the total deadpan.

Doesn't dovetail with the Will Ferrell ads, but still not a bad attempt at going viral.

(Oh yeah, Will is part owner of Funny or Die....)

I bought a 6'er of Old Milwaukee last week just because of Will Ferrell's ad campaign. I homebrew and I'm a self professed beer "snob". With that said, Old Milwaukee is a good beer for it's style and price. It has a very light pleasant taste and smell. It doesn't need to be chilled to 30 below to be drinkable without inducing a gag reflex.

I would say if for some reason I wanted an adjunct lager that it would be my first choice.

Yeah, these kinds of things should be required by law to have a blooper reel.

I have seen your profile page. You are in no position to complain about any other country's beer. (More like XXXX Golden Shower, amirite?)

OK, the outtakes should have been the post here. Great stuff. The high point is the barn where the cameraman gets hit and then the very next shot he's far away.

Old Milwaukee is by far the best beer at its price point. Nothing comes close. I'm glad Will and I are on the same page there.

Hey, I know that elevator! That's on W Pittsburgh Ave in Milwaukee.

The outtakes video was totally entertaining; the original video is a necessary prerequisite for hilarity though. The finished video, they're all "srs bizns", but in the outtakes they're laughing and they have this half-smile, half-disappointed look. You're kind of rooting for them, you know?
