I read about this Miller Lite commercial at Pandagon [original post removed: see this one instead] and wondered if anyone else has seen it:
The entire fake debate about sticking your thumb in the bottle was just an excuse for the next part of the commercial where it was smugly agreed upon that, and I swear to god they said this, “You poke it, you own it.” And in case you didn’t get the point that this was “cute” sleaziness, they repeated a few times and then declared that poking equals ownership was the new Man Law.
One of the commenters at Amanda’s blog points out:
I’m surprised that no one has pointed out that all those blokes sitting around the “Man Law” table are professional athletes and “old-guard” Hollywood-type figures.
Which is why I’m hoping someone can describe this commercial better for me. What exactly are they trying to sell here?
