I actually quite like the ad (it's a really funny spot), but I wish it were advertising, like, actual beer.

Yes, if Bud Light tasted as good as the ads, I'd be drunk on it all the time.

I hope that's a real (er, commissioned?) commercial, it's pretty good esp for a beer company.

And My <3 to robocop, I would not have clicked this link had I not seen him post it!

Happy Fuckin' Friday, y'all!

Okay, profanity for profanity's sake isn't really all that amusing, but I finally laughed at the bit where the gal at the copier says "Poop." Two fucks up for this one.

Well, it's not really inadvertent, so I guess this won't be on broadcast TV anytime soon, but I could easily see it on, say, Spike or the Comedy Channel.

I do have a question though, what is a "fucking jellyfish hipster"? Specifically what does the word "jellyfish" connote in this context? I have never heard this before.

I worked at a company that bought the beer for us and we had "beer-thirty" every Friday at 4:30. We also had free sodas, snacks, yoga, evening dinner for people working late, concierge service, and shitloads of free money. It was pretty cool.

Hey guys, did any of you notice that one of the posters is called Beerfilter? As in Beer? And, like, the post had beer in it? And we're on Metafilter? And the poster was called Beerfilter? Is it just me, or is that kind of... eponysterical?!

ahh, heck..

I have to chime in here... I can't watch the link, I'm at work, but I gotta say, it's posts like this on the front page that keep me from sending some good people to metafilter to read specific links, I don't want to send a member of my Board of Directors to Meta to read something intelligent and useful 'cuz I'm afraid he or she might hit a post on the front page that uses the fuck five times....

I'm not saying the target of the post is bad (haven't seen it yet), but how about putting a NSFW tag on the front page and all the fucks you want in a "more inside"....

Wow, if HuronBob's directors aren't coming along, I guess we'll all just wither on the vine.

Fuck's sake.

I don't send my girlfriend's kids to Mefi either. Same as when I have a party, they don't come. And neither do HuronBob's Board of Directors.
posted by imperium at 8:47 AM on June 8, 2007


HuronBob - all the child fucking keeps me from recommending nabokov to my parents. Would you do me the kind service of contacting the publisher and asking for a version that I can send to a member of my board of directors?

can you and your ilk please leave off and let us have at least one solitary corner that isn't filtered (nyuck) and white washed for those of delicate sensibilities? If its really that big of a deal, link your friends to a specific article rather than the front page.
posted by nihlton at 8:49 AM on June 8, 2007


HuronBob: I remember at one FPP that linked to flat-out pornography. I can't find it right now, unfortunately. (although mathowie will probably be amused by the search strings in the log).

Oh wait, here's one, although not the one I was thinking of.

Anyway, point being, there are more obscene things on MeFi than a few stray f-bombs, so I don't think [more inside] is going to help you here...

Also, yeah -- Nutrigrain's "I feel great" remains one of the greatest commercials I've ever seen.

A friend of mine worked in HR at a startup where they had beer every friday. At first everyone joined in and it was pretty cool. But then fewer people showed up and after it a while it was the same four guys getting hammered on enough beer for the entire office. So the company stopped providing beer.

It works just fine without the performatives, but a MeFite can't achieve orgasm without posting "I FLAG YOU" first.

Nevermind the video, I'm so happy reading this horrible thread. i never knew what fucking potty mouth mother fuckers you guys were??! sometimes i feel i'm the only half-intelligent asshole in the world that swears anymore, I was afraid puritanical anti-fuck church-police locked up the profane masses in Guantanamo and I was next.

I'd like to think most of us are big boys and girls and not trapped in some delusional world where the word "shit" is a gateway into a life of hustling, heroin-dealing, suicide, and sex crimes. Thanks to this I'll sleep well tonight, after i get done drinking a few fucking beers and throwing bricks at some cops.

Yeah, it actually was brilliant because the acting and/or directing decision to make the delivery of that line angry and vicious rather than casual or jokey made all the difference.

I was a staff reporter for the Kaiserslautern American one summer in the early 1990s. We worked out of the office of 86 Wing Public Affairs on Ramstein Air Base in Germany.

On Fridays starting at 1400 hours, we met in the conference room for what I think was called "staff training" - some winking euphemism, anyway. The officer in charge brought in cases of quart bottles of top-drawer local beer. If it was a sunny day, sometimes it started at noon at the barbecue pit. The office - like the US military generally - was disproportionately southern. Goddamn those boys could barbecue. Real southern bbq ribs and a quart of cold German pils - now that's working.

Bud Light, on the other hand, could produce a 60-second cinematic masterpiece of Kubrickian genius, and I still wouldn't use that fucking swill to clean the grill afterward.

A great idea executed well. A rarity on TV at all, but exceptionally rare in commercials.

But, like those above, no matter how good their commercials are, I'll never buy their product, because it is terrible.

The "poop" -> STFU really did have more meaning because of the hostility, notice out of everyone they are the only two to build a relationship, seeing how the first run at the conference room is her asking him for a pen. That one had some aggression too.

wfc123, your comment reminded me of a dubbed version of Raging Bull I saw on WGN years ago. All of the swearing was replaced by piratey sounding like-a-curses; I'm guessing Scorsese must've recorded almost an entire new movie's worth of dialog just to accomodate the networks. Anyhoo, it was gosh durn hilarious.

I don't know about clever, but by definition something is funny if people think it's funny. Just the small sample in this MetaFilter thread shows a good portion of people think it's funny. Therefore, it's funny. It's just not funny to you. That's okay: anyone who claims it's a funny ad shouldn't think that means it is, or should be, funny to everyone.

At any rate, these weird proclamations from some people that something isn't scary that quite obviously is scaring people or that something isn't funny that quite obviously is making people laugh...that's just bizarrely egocentric. What, you think that all these people are pretending just to fuck with you?

You must mean ‘Upper Slobovia’ or ‘Ultra Suede.’ Because I watch a lot of television in the United States, and can't recall seeing any blurred-out mouths.

Me, either. In fact, I recall asking my deaf aunt about this recently and she told me that she can occasionally read the mouths of people on television saying naughty words that are either censored or where there isn't audio. Unless I hallucinated this conversation while in an opium stupor, which is entirely possible.

I did see this happen once on a local newscast. My husband and I laughed ourselves silly over it. But most of the times I've seen those 'blur censors' they were obscuring a naughty word on a placard or a flipped bird, and then only on newcasts, never on anything scripted.

We talk about people (not) saying fuck (all).

Still - silly beer commercial. These things are obviously targeted towards younger audiences (say, highschool-aged citizens) - so that when they're in college, underaged at a bar, when confronted with what beer they would like to purchase...

They'll say: "Bud Light!"
