Random thought: the point of the "no such thing as a quiet beer" Carlsberg ads they show before movies seems to be "Everytime you're about to get lucky, don't open a Carlsberg, otherwise some asses will barge their way into your life".
probably the worst beer campaign in the world. and carlsberg tastes shitty anyhow.
Regardless of any further justification, it deserved a mention in dsng.net, which is an accomplishment in itself. When you get people talking about an ad (and invariably the product), I think an ad has acheived its aim. Pervasiveness is key! :P
igaku - as the others' posts seem to show though, everyone knows the ads, but noone has changed their opinion of the beer because of them! :)
The Nordic beauty beach-strolling ads were extremely cheesy in my opinion! But I suppose that's irrelevant, since I don't drink beer. And if it works for you and other male beer drinkers, then it's fine.
Though the one with the old auntie with curlers in her hair's quite disgusting...
