A flash beer ad.

A flash beer ad. Not great beer, but a very flash and dancing ad. (Previously featured, presumably by the same agency.)

Funny ad, though I doubt the young 'uns would know what movie they're parodying.

God, I'm getting old.

"The Vividas Player has not finished loading"

Does this only work in one browser?

Boags beer is better. This ad, like all other ads, is shit.

I was amused.

You can tell it's not a good beer because he poured it on himself. If this were an ad for Stella that would be a sacrilege. I'm not saying that Stella is necessariliy an excellent beer, just that wasting it like that would tarnish its "Reassuringly Expensive" marketing campaign.

See it's funny cuz he's a big sloppy wreck of a man, and he's re-enacting a famous scene from a movie where a lithe young woman dances and pours stuff on herself, and... what's that? So that's not funny anymore? Well ha! It looks like Chris Farley is out of a job, now that... what? He's what? Oh. Nevermind.

Loved it. All you haters can keep drinking your "Haterade". I'm going to go pour a Carlton Draught. Between this and the Big Beer ad, I'm hooked.

pompoms, you only drink it because it's cheap, and you're cheap.

I like the slogan, "made form beer", inferring that it's made from beer leavings or dregs, which is about right.

Though of course, I'll be drinking it tonight.

Oh, boags being better? You'd be from northern tassie then. Almost as shit a beer. Not quite, but as close as no mind. Try a blind test between boags strong-arm and VB, you'll not care which one.

Mass-production watery swill, Carlton, Boags, Tooheys. At least Carlton has good ads.

Mr.Encyclopedia - Just in case you're not kidding and really don't know: Flashdance. [many a parody is to be found]
