          Okay, so if I say I miss the old Western Airlines commercials (the oooonnnllllyyyyy way to fly) will I really be dating myself ???? :-O
          <GGG>

      2. Really? I hate them -- they just rub me the wrong way (or maybe it's the way he has women rubbing all over him). But then, I hate most beer commercials.

          I remember an old movie entitled 'Beer' starring Loretta Switt. It was a comedy centered around macho/sexist beer advertising. I thought the movie was pretty hilarious, as Loretta Switts character was the writer of the commercials. This Dos Equis campaign reminded me of that movie.

            Funny premise for a fictional story, but I'm pretty sure that no woman wrote the ads I find most offensive. Sure, I'm not the beer industry's target customer. I get that. But is it ever good business for a company to alienate a large segment of the population? I have to believe that they are simply not aware of the way some people perceive some of their ads.

            I listen to baseball games on the radio, and apparently the ad companies are unaware of the fact that a significant percentage of baseball fans are women, because I hear commercials over and over that make me want to throw something at the radio (there was one that I finally started turning the radio off when it came on and turning it back on when I figured it was over -- although that one wasn't sexist, just moronic to the Nth degree). I do remember one particular ad where a line that I thought was sexist was changed, presumably because someone pointed it out. But that was for an airline, not a beer company.

        2. I also vote for being lame. Now give me the old Hamms beer bear any day over the most interesting man in the world.

          1. Oh, come on you guys, lighten up...this guy and these commercials are so ridiculous and absurd that's what makes them entertaining.

            I'd date the old geezer (but not the young incarnation), but I'd probably be grossly disappointed because no one behaves like that anymore....or at least not since Richard Burton, Night of the Iguana and Vallarta...
