Thursday’s ad is the fourth this week for Budweiser in their long-running “where there’s life … there’s Bud” series. This one’s from 1959 and features a night scene on what looks like a cattle drive or perhaps more likely a dude ranch. I wonder how they get the models to make those priceless faces, the man’s smirk (doesn’t he look a bit like Charlton Heston) and her unbridled glee. Then there’s that pour again, the glass already full but still pouring. Surely I can’t be the first person to notice how ridiculously impossible that would be, at least without making a mess and spilling the beer.

More likely it’s a hay ride. Weird way to pour a beer, I must say, & it doesn’t look like he’s going to stop filling the mug.
Pliny noticed the backhand pour … maybe this post will inspire someone to host a backhand-pour contest @ a beer festival 🙂
