We do love talking about commercials here. I was going to put this one in Around the Web today but I thought it was too funny for you all to ignore like you do all of our other around the web posts. Plus I saw this on a friend’s Facebook feed a short time ago so now I’m forced to take action and get this up for you all to marvel at.
This commercial comes from those funny guys down under. This is a commercial for Carlton Draught that spoofs 80s American action movies complete with it’s own 80s action theme song. I don’t know if it’s the best beer commercial ever made, but it’s certainly the best beer commercial ever made that we are posting today that was made by the Aussies.
Carlton Draught – The Beer Chase
I spent some time down under when I was in the Army. Let me tell you what I learned about Australia. Absolutely everything there is designed by nature to kill you in the most painful ways possible, and the Aussies like to drink beer by the gallon. The ones I met were also very funny so this commercial seems to get everything right. They could have really gone for the gold if they had gotten Crockett and Tubbs to chase them for a bit. That would have been gold Jerry. Gold.
