    Re: The worst Scotch ad ever.

    What's this crap about me having to sign in? If they want me to participate in their marketing campaign I insist on being paid.

    YouTube was asking you to sign in? You should be able to see it without signing in.

    A window pops up demanding I submit my email and join with a password to watch youtube ads intended for mature audiences.

    That's annoying. If anything, I'd say you're actually too mature for the ad.

    I think it does a great job of hitting its target market.

    Lol. Bros love commercials like this, it speaks to them, hotties, hand grenades, and wingmen. This what the 22-year-old former frat boy, recent grad, wishes their life would be like

    It must be pleasant to have an unobstructed mind.

    Re: The worst Scotch ad ever.

    I don't know, I work in advertising and this is pretty middling, conceptually. Not offensively bad, not inspired. Good production, as you would expect. The "hand-grenade" thing is in poor taste, objectively, but it's just the flip side of the cultural norms that play out in alcohol advertising. If there's a swedish bikini team, there's also Rebel Wilson in "Super Fun Night". Forward this to Jezebel and see if their perpetual-feminist-rage-machine can do a sloppy op-ed. That's the kind of righteous indignation I demand, you're taking it too easy on them.

    I do like the tag line - You can't buy friends, but you can buy friends a drink. That's pretty choice.

    Bit whiny, and fatuous.
