When you are too cheap to spring for Champagne, I guess
I'll admit I didn't pay attention past the first thirty seconds or so of this talky ad- just enough to convince myself that it wasn't a joke. Because it sure sounded like one when I first noticed it.
I mean, really- "Brewleywed?" The "perfect way to say 'I Do?'" Maybe if we've got two tasteless beer-swillers hooking up. Even then. I like beer, and so did the woman I married- but....."Brewleywed?" Please. How can a drink which probably goes great with nachos, burgers and curly fries be the "perfect way" to do anything as important as proposing, an important moment which should be approached in a much more solemn manner- say, on the JumboTron in front of 45,000 strangers who couldn't give a flying damn.
The idea is soooooo stupid, I don't even want to hear this guy's explanation for creating it and putting the beer in what looks like a champagne bottle. I don't want to hear about the quality of the hops or how it's for that super special occasion or how everyone will love and remember it (remember it, I'm sure- as in "can you believe they served that stuff? What- it WASN'T a mock-up? That was for real? No kidding??") I will admit to being impressed by his ability to talk for a full minute with a straight face about "Brewleywed."
Brewleywed. This is a joke, right? No? You're Serious? Brewleywed? Come on.
