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 round!” Ay carumba, this is more softcore than some porns I’ve seen.
Men, don’t you resent being advertised to in this way? Or are you A-OK with the whole “tits, beer, more tits” thing? [AdWeek] Keep reading »
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 squeezes the lime juice and then plunges the fruit rind directly into your beer. This handy gadget might just be the best invention since beer itself.
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 blog After Elton notes, “If you substituted a woman for [the potential boyfriend portrayed throughout the commercial], it would read pretty much exactly like a heterosexual relationship.” That’s a good point. Whether the commercial is meant to be read as “gay” or “gay-friendly,” though, it’s a sad comment on society when we’ve become accustomed to ads marketed towards men being bro-tastic.

There are royal wedding themed products out there for all types – mugs, doughnuts, press-on nails, and even a William and Kate refrigerator (mine is on backorder). There’s nothing wrong with a little bit of ridiculous memorabilia to commemorate the momentous occasion, but Royal Virility Performance? Come now. BrewDog is releasing a limited edition India Pale Ale beer laced with chocolate, horny goat weed, and actual viagra to help male drinkers “celebrate big Willy style.” Just $15 a bottle for a night you won’t forget. Oh. No. But part of the proceeds go to charity. Still … NO. [Metro UK] Keep reading »
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” as far as 12-year-old-boy-humor is concerned. Alas, giving men a hard time for showing affection because they may look gay is neither funny nor original.
I mean, really: The lessons for men about maleness in this commercial are about as subtle as a piece of poster board that simply says “Lite beer = fa**ot.” Hey, Guinness, don’t steal that. [Queerty] Keep reading »
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 “Kiss Me Kate,” which is based on Shakespeare’s “Taming of the Shrew,” too! Over the years, way too many guys have preluded a smooch with the words “Kiss Me Kate,” which—I won’t lie—makes me want to gag each and every time. Not to mention all the teachers I had, kindergarten through college, who alluded to the play’s name or plot after calling on me in class. I’m just glad to know Kate Middleton feels my pain.

Behold! Man has truly outdone himself this time. Or at least one man. Mark Zable has perfected his fried beer munchies after five years of tinkering and is ready to sell them to the public. Zable’s recipe for the concoction involves pouring beer into ravioli pockets and tossing them in the deep fryer. Bonus! The brew bites can still get you drunk, because they only have a 20-second cook time. [Gawker]

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. Keep reading »
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 so excited about it, it makes me want to use all-caps all the time. They’re candles! Made for men! They are MANDLES. But what the heck does a man candle smell like? Find out after the jump. Keep reading »
