If there’s one type of commercial I miss, it’s liquor commercials.Â Most people past the mid to late 90′s don’t remember this, but liquor commercials actually used to be on during the day.Â Not only that, they used to really mix it up with some weird stuff.
Like you’d see liquor commercials but mixed with sports.Â Nowadays all liquor and alcoholic commercials mostly come on past 8PM and always seem to feature people out on the town.Â And you always get the “drink responsibly” thing.Â Not that I condone drunk driving.Â I’m far from it.
But somehow I think it takes away from the commercials.Â They just don’t make commercials like the ones I’m sharing anymore.Â And if they do, they’re made in Europe.
Here are 10 solid booze ads classified by type of booze.
Bourbon – Jim Beam Girlfriend
Nothing’s better than woman to spice up your commercial.
Whiskey – Jack Daniels’ Rodeo
Sometimes Whiskey can hit you like a swift kick to the nuts.Â This commercial is here to remind of that fact, but also to get up from that nut kick.
Scotch – William Lawson’s No Rules Great Scotch
Wait a second.Â What?Â What the hell is this ending?Â I mean it’s a great commercial if it’s for a porn movie but Tequila?Â How was Cuervo not in hot water after this?
Gin – Gordon’s Commercial
Once again, chicks, they work.
Vodka- Best Vodka Ad Ever
Funny we never saw this on TV
Rum – Basketball and Rum
This is priceless.Â This is from 1990?Â Seems much older
Liquer – Weird Bailey’s Commercial
Wine – Orson Welles Drunk Outtake
Man I wish I could have seen this back in those days.
Beer – Best Guinness Commercial Ever
I’m guessing you didn’t see this one either.
