Deck the halls with BOOZE… and Schwepps

November 25, 2009

Funnily enough, I find myself craving gingerale now. I know “Brilliant!” is Guiness’s schtick, but I think the use of these 1950s illustrations to make hilarious commercials deserves a “Brilliant!”. And a toast, with a Jack and Ginger, or something equally Schwepps-tastic.


Jingle Bells are Ringing, part 2

Apparently this is a popular title for me. I saw this commercial last night and my first thought was “Island of Misfit Toys!!!”. I always loved this part, partially because of the polka-dotted elephant. I should make myself one.

Then I saw the iPhone come in, and the rest of the commercial played out, and I thought, “Awesome!”. I have nothing against the iPhone, and the Verizon “map for that” commercial was rather clever, but this one just cracks me up. It has a pop culture reference with zing. Who wouldn’t love that?
