    EW & Maxim

    Anybody else feel uncomfortable with this? I like hotties in bikinis as much as the next straight guy, but something about this makes me feel uncomfortable.

    http://www.maxim.com/contests/evanwilliams/

    Maybe part of it is that I can't exactly figure out what the contest has to do with the whiskey. Sexiness sells, of course, but what is this woman going to do? Pour drinks at the Sampler? Run the cash register at the Bourbon Heritage Center? Become the HH spokesmodel? Whack bungs?

    If HH was in need of a female spokesperson, then Bettye Jo would have been the natural choice.

    What is she going to do?

    She is going to help sell EW bourbon to the Maxim/FHM crowd, that's what.

    What did you expect to see in Maxim? Julie Andrews from The Sound of Music?

    (I'll let someone else toss in a witty response to the "whack bungs" soft toss)

    I grossed over eight thousand dollars in one night. Time of your life, huh kid?

    I actually would like to see Julie Andrews in there. In her day she was quite a babe. Not too bad now either.

    Alrighty then. You can stick with the before aging side of this advertisement.

    Does HH add silicone to their whiskey too?

    Silicone? Nah. That's just the amazing work of a Wonderbra!

    Been a long time since I've seen one of those! But maybe that's just the company I keep.

    What haven't you seen in a long time?
    Corporate contests, Men's magazines, Julie Andrews, Evan Willams ads, silicone, or wonderbras?

    Um, nevermind.

    All of the above. I was going to make a pun about the abundence of nature but I better quit while I'm ahead.

    The "Maxim/FHM crowd" must be pretty low brow. At least the 'before and after aging' advertisement conveyed a message that said something about the product.
