Queen Buzzkill

As anyone who takes the trouble to look up the numbers can tell you, 80% of all alcohol sales are generated by about 20% of the population and that's a generous fudging of the numbers because 10% of that 20% are pikers. The real money comes from the 10% and in America those guzzling guys and gals drink Bud - about $10B worth of suds per year. So it comes as a surprise that the King of Beers would hire the Queen of England (or at least, her proxy) to lecture the freeborn American citizen about drinking, driving or anything else in the middle of a secular national Holliday but that's exactly what they did during last nights Super Bowl. It's downright un-American to watch this English prig bitch out the US beer lovers who might enjoy roaring down a dirty back road with a cold one in hand and a case of Bud on ice in the back seat. Piss off Queenie - stroll on down to the Pig & Whistle and drink a pint of warm ale with your bangers and mash and think about your tiny autos that drink $10 per gallon petrol. This is the USA and we'll drive drunk until we get caught and then we'll do it again.



Alternate Ad Copy: "Now that the 3rd quarter of today's Super Bowl is coming to a close you, our honorable and loyal customer, are probably well into your second six-pack of brew and planning to quaff much more of our golden elixir before the night is through. The Anheuser-Busch Companies, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of InBev, would like to thank you for your patronage and remind you that fighting, driving or falling down drunk will not change the outcome of the game. So don't throw that punch, don't grab the car keys and don't over do it - laugh and the world laughs with you, cry and you cry alone. Bottoms up (glug, glug,glug...)".
