, a German-style lager, has been brewed just outside the capital of Independent Samoa since 1978. There are two versions to choose from, the normal 4.9% strength
and the the export-only 6.7%
. But, unless you're somewhere near Samoa, you probably won't be able to find it. So, enjoy the commercials, instead!
- The first ad shows Samoa at work and play, and you even get a view of Apia's nightlife.
- But when you're just hanging in the fale with your mates, sometimes the Vailima runs out ... so recreate the first ad and see what happens.
- Vailima seems to run out a lot (listen for "'O uma!", or "It's all gone!" in both this commercial and the previous one). Sometimes, you just gotta dig a little deeper and hope for the best. Australians will appreciate the soundtrack to this one.
- Finally, even Samoan hospitality can be stretched a little when you steal their beer.
So go to Samoa. Drink some Vailima. Toast with a "manuia!
" Just remember that they're small islands, so help out the guys doing the recyling.
