Will Ferrell’s Very Will Ferrellian Swedish Old Milwaulkee Commercial

Pretty much everything Will Ferrell does is funny -- even in Swedish. Ferrell did a series of commercials in Sweden for Old Milwaukee, and in one of them, he even speaks the language.

Would You Eat A Beer-Filled Donut?

Yep, you read that right: this crazy creation from a place called (fittingly) Psycho Donuts is filled with real beer pastry cream and topped with beer nuts. I'm a huge fan of donuts but I hate beer, so this confection leaves me conflicted. Would you be brave…

5 Alternative Uses For Beer

Growing up with many German relatives, I knew from an early age that beer was very important to people. But as an adult, I learned that beer is useful for more than just drinking. From an (oddly true) sleep aid to a natural pesticide, here are my favorite "other uses" for beer. Wash Your Hair…

Pink Beer: New Favorite Of Girly-Girl Drunks Everywhere?

Pink beer is the latest product to be feminized for the fairer sex. Molson Coors, a brewery, is pink-ifying a lager called Animée to be less "masculine" with "clear filtered, crisp rosé and zesty lemon flavors," according to the UK's Independent. Pink beer ... sounds like wine. It sounds like champagne, actually. And pink…

Bud Light Lime’s Softcore UFC Ring Girl Ad: Innuendo With A Slice Of Lime

  Oh, beer advertisements. What would I blog about without you? Bud Light Lime's UFC sponsorship seamlessly blends panty-clad "ring girl" Arianny Celeste with "Bud Light" stamped on her ass (klassy!), lime slices gingerly covering her lady bits, and ultimate fighting/sexual innuendo like "I like a guy that can go more than one…

Give Your Brew A Citrus Injection

There are few greater summertime pleasures than an ice cold beer with a freshly squeezed lime floating inside it. Except getting the juice -- and then the slice of lime -- down inside is often more complicated than it should be. That's why some genius saw fit to create the Citrus Blaster, which first squeeze…

Is This Military-Themed Budweiser Ad Gay? Or Just, You Know, Friendly?

Is this military-themed Budweiser commercial, um, gay? I'm guessing you don't ask and you don't tell, either. With so many beer commercials opting for the "real men aren't gay! GRR! Eat some raw meat!" tactic, I can help but wonder whether it means something when two men are portrayed lovingly. As the gay…

Guinness Beer Commercials Teaches Men How To Hug Without Looking Gay

Guinness beer fans the flames of homophobia with its new St. Patrick's Day commercial with a lesson on how men can hug other men without looking ... gay. (Because arching your butt backwards in an A-frame hug doesn't draw more attention to it at all!) I know this commercial is a "joke" a…

Brewery Makes “Kiss Me Kate (Middleton)” Beer

Kate Middleton and I have something big in common. We are both marrying princes named Kate. And now that a brewery in Nottingham has dreamed up this royal wedding themed beer, I am feeling closer to Kate then ever before. Apparently she has been tortured by the existence of Cole Porter's musical…

We Like This Wes Anderson And Roman Coppola Directed Stella Artois Commercial

Young auteurs everywhere violently dislike (read: envy) directors Wes Anderson and Roman Coppola, and surely this new commercial for Stella Artois beer directed by both will make their filmmaker heads explode. The premise is pretty sly. A dashing dude brings home a cute girl to whom he shows off his super cool bachelor pad. Only…

The Latest Diet: Drink Beer! (No Problem!)

I feel like I'm always reading some new study about the best kind of alcohol to drink to help maintain your figure or even lose a few pounds. Last I remember, I was celebrating the study that found that red wine keeps you slim. But apparently that is no longer the case.

Mandles: Candles For The Man Who Likes A Room That Smells Like Fart

I'm not going to be shy about this. I'm a big supporter of the idea that men should have man things. Their own style underpants. Their man caves. Their awful brands of beer. In that spirit, I gave two big thumbs up to the blessed arrival of THE ORIGINAL MAN CANDLE. I'm…

Need some early motivation to start making your Father's Day plans? Perhaps this story will inspire you. Twenty-four-year-old Matthew Brace walked into a Massachusetts convenience store on Monday with his three-month-old baby. Sadly, Brace did not have the money needed to purchase to two 40-ounce bottles of beer. And so he said, "For two…

How Refreshing! A Beer Commercial That’s Not Totally Sexist And Annoying Towards Women!

Instead, Bud Light's "book club" commercial manages to be pretty sexist and annoying towards men. Beer is the best part of book clubs! "Thrusting"! And what's Little Women? Gee, boys must be super-dumb. Oh, beer commercials, when will you ever grow up? [YouTube]…
