We often use lines from that commercial around the office. "I have a Jack-wagon coming in at 3."

(Oh, now, we all know doctors and therapists make fun of us behind the scenes.)

Re: Favorite commercial Diane9247 8/15/13 5:04 PM
Genius!  An on-the-street promotion by Amstel Beer of Amsterdam.  "The "Amstel Pause" machine encouraged thirsty passersby [in Sofia, Bulgaria] to stand still in front of the machine and push a button to start a timer. The machine dispensed a free beer if they held their pose for three minutes."  It might have been a challenge for the youthful customers shown to actually hold still that long.  This would never do in most states in the US, where, heaven help you if you're caught (1) getting a free beer on the sidewalk, or (2) walking around in public drinking one!

                                              Ding-ding - here's your beer!  

P.S.  The old posts' videos above are mostly gone after the "big change" to Google Groups.   : (    But, please add new ones for our entertainment!

Re: Favorite commercial Noisette 8/22/13 3:33 AM
I love this:

Would you go?  I love the idea, but I suspect work (and no holiday left this year!) would make me say no :(  Otherwise Norm, watch out, I'd be headed your way ;)

Re: Favorite commercial Diane9247 8/28/13 3:34 AM
That's a great one, Noisette!  Yes, I'd go, and my choice would be Italy.  
Re: Favorite commercial Noisette 9/8/13 3:41 AM
Ah, the joys of being retired Diane :)

I hadn't seen this one before, I had no idea what to expect.


Re: Favorite commercial Noisette 9/21/13 3:10 AM
This one put a smile on my face too: KITKAT - Have a seat.
