    Re: The worst Scotch ad ever.

    That's completely uncalled for.

    That, the Heineken ads, all the tequila ones, the new ad w the smoke monster from Lost. They're all pretty much the same.

    Alright Josh, since I do not wish to offend any member here I've edited that post. As for the teary eyed, ascot worshiping Mr Minnick the women I know don't need his condescending protection.

    Agreed - even Minnick admits "I’m generally not a member of the Political Correctness police, and there was a time in my life when this Dewar’s commercial would have appealed to me—when I was a college kid". It is a juvenile ad designed to reach a particular segment - I agree parts of it are offensive, but I think it is designed to be. Have you seen that internet Orbit gum commercial with Jason Bateman? As a father of a young girl, the premise of that ad did not particularly strike me as funny. The internet provides a medium for commercials that wouldn't make it to TV.

    I believe the intent is (was?) to show it on TV. The ad is only for the US, though. The rest of the world gets this: http://vimeo.com/71338091

    Re: The worst Scotch ad ever.

    Ad seems to have been removed from YouTube?

    Yes, others are reporting that too. Still up other places, apparently.
