Heisman House Bottom of the Barrel absolute nothingness
The "joke" of this ad is that all the former Heisman trophy winners (including Tim Tebow, who has NOTHING but time) some beer company could get to appear in an ad show up for a reunion and sit down to a banquet- only to suddenly revert to stupid little boys and engage in a food fight. All of this is supposed to be LOL HYSTERICAL and I guess it is, if you are anything like most of the YouTube commentators.
Personally, I don't get it- but that's pretty much par for the course as far as I'm concerned. I am forever being subjected to ads I know are meant to be funny in some way but which just leave me disgusted, sad or - at best- indifferent. Why would anyone think that watching middle-aged men pretending to throw food at eachother is funny? Why would anyone be inspired to buy beer by watching this ad? Does it make anyone thirsty? What the hell?
(I guess the "funny" is supposed to be in the idea that decades after these guys left college and did or did not have successful NFL careers, they still carry their old collegiate rivalries deep inside and really can't stand to be with eachother because they didn't all get athletic scholarships to the same school? In other words, because they are still trapped in their lost childhoods? Um, LOL?)
Anyway, that's all I've got for this bit of garbage, except to give another shout-out to the YouTube commentators who just got so much joy out of this 61 seconds of infantile crap. You guys are real winners. The future of our country you are. Go get 'em in 2018- climb every mountain, test-drive every truck, go to every backyard barbecue and play every video game. Just don't vote, ok? No voting next year- voting is stupid and lame and something Social Justice Warriors do and it doesn't even involve throwing food most of the time. It's totally not for you. Trust me.
