The Woman Whisperer

Just launched - A funny ad for Carlton Mild in Australia. The beer is mid-strength so you can stay longer at the pub drinking with your mates... well I am sure we have all seen this, been apart of it or been at the wrong end of this situation. VERY AUSTRALIAN!

Comments on this entry

"The Whispering of the Shrew"
Nothing very original about misogynistic beer ads.
Coors refined the genre. But this does have a really unpleasant subtext.

It's a funny spot but the concept behind a "mild beer" seems more interesting and the spot doesn't really communicate it very well. But funny.

Yes...very Australian - misogyny and an American cowboy! The schlub with the inexplicably hot girlfriend is a fairly international trend though...
