If Will Ferrell asks you if he can make ads for your oft-reviled product for free, the answer is always going to be yes. And that’s what Pabst Brewing Co. said when he presented the idea to do local TV ads in Davenport, Iowa for Old Milwaukee beer.
Yes, that Old Milwaukee, the one even your little brother won’t drink if there’s nothing else left in the house. BusinessInsider says Ferrell asked to do the ads last September, and went ahead and shot some spots, all focusing on Davenport. Which, of course, is not Milwaukee. Hilarious!
The ads are funny, and would most likely go viral — if Old Milwaukee had a YouTube page. As for whether or not they’ll actually boost sales of Old Milwaukee… well, my little brother does like a good Will Ferrell joke.
Enjoy them in their taped-off-TV glory below.
