Miller lite dating commercials
Analysis: This highly Russian commercial is, upon first viewing, a bit of a puzzle. They enter a dressing room and try on lingerie, but are soon swept into a passionate frenzy by all the nylon, lace and operatic music. Two scantily-clad young women park their convertible and walk together into a clothing store. Score: For great choreography, a truly passionate kiss, and for the unironic use of motor boating, this ad gets four out of five mud-wrestling lesbians. No, seriously, they kiss for 20 seconds (we counted). The shot fades and we’re left with the image of an overflowing bottle of Tinkoff beer. Sometimes a bottle of beer is just bottle of beer, and just because queer women might not be the target audience for this advertisement doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy it. Score: Sensual, unflinching display of a prolonged and passionate lesbian kiss? Heavy-handed bottle symbolism and the fact that this scene has absolutely nothing to do with the product being sold? We give this ad three out of five mud-wrestling lesbians.Commercial: “Tinkoff Beer” (Russia)Date: 2005 Advertiser: Tinkoff Weissbier Description: We’ll have what they’re having. Commercial: “Fashion Versus Style” (UK)Date:2005 Advertiser: FCUK (French Connection) Description: Two women (one representing “Fashion” and the other “Style”) duke it out in an sexually-charged smackdown. Everybody wins Analysis: French designer Yves Saint Laurent once said, “Fashion fades, style is eternal,” and this 2005 commercial from the UK brought his quote to vivid life by using women to represent “Style” and “Fashion” and then having them square off in a fight to the death. The two opponents are gradually disrobed as they throw, punch, and kick one another across the room.Their choreographed fight is part , complete with whip-like sound effects for every head turn and come-and-get-it gesture.That being said, in this second installment, we’ve found that these ads more favorably represent queer women than our first batch of ads.
This Heineken commercial is a continuation of the “Walk-in Fridge” and “Walking Fridge” commercials. In our first installment in this series on the representation of lesbians and bisexual women in commercials, we looked at some of the best, worst, and weirdest commercials we could find.As we delve further into the subject, we continue to see certain trends.Seemingly every broadcast is larded with promos crammed with eye-glazing inanities like Punch Top Cans, Cold Certified Bottles, Man Laws, Silver Bullet Trains, Triple Filtered Smoothness, golf and Lance Armstrong. Unfathomably, light beer was once a fledgling product.
While lower-calorie suds had been sold before, the stuff didn't gain a foothold until Miller introduced Lite Beer (later renamed Miller Lite) in the 1970s.Along the way, they stretch, toss their hair and caress their flashy little sports car. For John Madden’s great career second act, it came 35 years ago, in 1981.For Madden, the moment was a turning point for his career. And then the commercials got me into television as an analyst.
