My obsession with Elizabeth Hurley is well documented.
Which is why I was chuffed to bits too get a personal non-apology apology from her and Newcastle over the idiotic reaction to their truly funny "If We Had Won" campaign that surfaced when moronic "patriots" couldn't take a fucking joke. I mean, seriously, if obviously tongue-and-cheek ads by a BEER COMPANY from one of this country's strongest allies is offending you, maybe it's time to pull the flag pole out of your ass and just throw yourself off a cliff you miserable bastards.
Or just have a beer and relax maybe.
Anyway, here is Elizabeth Hurley in all her brutally hot glory...
And, in case you hadn't seen the original "terribly offensive ads," here's an example...
ZOMFG! SO OFFENSIVE! BUT NOT AS OFFENSIVE AS THIS!!!...
And, be still my heart, Elizabeth Hurley getting filthy...
The whole campaign can be found here.
Geez. Now I could really use a Newcastle.
If Americans want a real reason to get mad at the Brits, HERE IT IS...
HOW CAN HOT TAMALES MAKE YOU SAD? What a complete wanker!
I love comments! However, all comments are moderated, and won't appear until approved. Are you an abusive troll with nothing to contribute? Don't bother. Selling something? Don't bother. Spam linking? Don't bother.
I have a few issues with this 🙂
1. Few people drink Newcastle Brown Ale anymore in Britain. It used to be popular, especially in Newcastle, except the brewery was closed and it’s now mass-produced alongside other beers in Tadcaster, near York.
2. The narrator is almost certainly an American making a bad attempt at a British accent. He seems to vary between ‘received pronunciation’ British, American, and a bit of Australian too.
3. There are much better British beers out there 🙂
But then none of them have Liz Hurley as a spokesperson I suppose.
Aren’t all beers owned by InBev now? 🙂 Boddingtons, which used to be my preferred British beer available in the US, has been bought and sold a few times, I believe. What I usually do when I’m in a British pub is let the barkeep suggest a beverage for me. Rarely has that ever steered me wrong, and I usually end up with some local brew that I can’t get back home.
hahah just watched through all those, giggling a lot of the way 🙂
I hadn’t heard or seen the Newcastle campaign. Not offensive at all. Of course, I get the joke.
The disgrace on the Hot Tamales though is something that chuffs me to no end.
