    The Famous Grouse

    I've probably missed a couple.

    I'd always hoped to bring out a whiskey called Old Woodchuck. Thinking it might be more successful as Old Woodcock.

    Re: New Wild Turkey Commercial

    Sorry for those that didn't watch it before they took it down. They stated it would be for a limited time.

    A recap: guy #1 and guy #2 hanging out at a bar, see hotchick #1 looking at guy #1. guy #2 says 'hey I think she's into you'. A couple of flirtatious back and forth between guy #1 and hotchick #1, then hotchick #1 flips guy #1 off with a smile. guy #2 'oh man I guess I was wrong'. guy #1 'no you were wrong, she just ordered me a Wild Turkey'. bartender pours WT on the rocks, showing off new label. Shows guy #1 and hotchick #1 in background sitting close and drinking while new WT labeled bottle in foreground. "Give 'em the Bird"

    ...and scene.

    Re: New Wild Turkey Commercial

    Here's the link to the new commercial.

    I get the edgy appeal, but after this sparks a few bar brawls they may reconsider.

    And what's with the woman's hair style? Farrah, is that you?

    There's a new tongue-in-cheek version of the Give 'Em the Bird commercial here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=WRZPquZJEv0

    Yes there is a lawsuit - Wild Turkey's lawyers came to the Filson to talk with me because they wanted to know more about Old Crow and "the bird". They did not realise that Old Crow dates back to the 1830s.

    Re: New Wild Turkey Commercial

    I'm seeing ads on the tops of cabs here in NYC, it's pictures of the two bottles (81 & 101) and the phrase, "Give 'em the Bird." I'm not going to boycott WT or anything, I just think it's sort of lame. It feels like they are taking a venerable brand and dumbing it down, and doing it badly.
