    Re: Nice Jim Beam TV Commercial

    Ok, if this chic was to say something like "I buy him a bottle of (insert your favorite bottle here) every week, no matter the price, and I drink it with him" I would be sold....and I would be moving.

    How many of you are willing to pay more for your bourbon...just to watch that commercial? Not I.

    Re: Nice Jim Beam TV Commercial

    Beam is already the best selling bourbon in the world, isn't it? They don't need us to be successful.

    I got email yesterday announcing the contest. I was wondering what the commercial looked like. I think there are a couple more.

    Yep. I guess that's why I didn't like it. My favorite beer commercials are the Sam Adams advertisements.

    You raise a good point. Spirits marketers, even big brands like Daniel's and Beam, have tiny ad budgets compared to the big beers. That's why they have to try to generate talk, anything to get more bang for the buck.

    Oh and, by the way, people who think advertising is bad because it makes products more expensive are Communists.

    And here I thought that I bled UT Burnt Orange???

    Chuck, do you have any rough numbers to compare a large brewer and a distillers ad budget?

    Re: Nice Jim Beam TV Commercial

    The difference would be at least a factor of ten, maybe more.

    Yes, or at least redistributive socialists who see themselves as the defenders of the proletariat against the so called "machinations" of the bourgeoisie.

    I will say that...as much as they advertise their product...is equal to the amount of effort I stay away from their product. So, hows that for bang for your buck in advertising dollars, Beam?

    Give me one of the little guys. They make better bourbon anyway.

    It's not Communism...that would be state owned bourbon distilleries. I just don't need someone to tell me which bourbon to drink. Maybe, others do?
