    Mila and Fred?

    Here's a really funny video. Mila seems like she can't wait for this gig to be over, and can't believe her agent roped her into doing a promo with this old dude:

    I don't know what you're talking about-- I watched it three times and never saw any old dude, just Mila!

    There are at least 7 of these videos in the series so far. I don't think she's waiting for the gig to be over, rather she's waiting for the royalty checks to come rolling in. At least Beam is making an effort to gain market share with this ad campaign, aiming it at the younger crowd, as well as attempting to make bourbon more approachable to women.

    It certainly had to be a little awkward for both Fred and Mila, but they did a nice job with it.

    I especially liked the part Fred shared about having a pour with Booker (his life sized statue in the rocking chair) when he got his picture on the bottle.

    I thought bourbon helped men approach women.

    Obviously you have never met Fred Noe he is a very funny and charming man, that's one of the reasons he has the job he has. I bet she had a good time doing this promo with him.

    I really like the video especially the "morning" barrel pour. By the end Mila does not appear to be acting a good time and I'd attribute that to Fred's charm too.
