Ad That Made Us Not Want to Hang Out With the People In It
The clips for Budweiser's Black Crown beer touted the ale as "our kind of beer," while groups of hipster doofuses clad all in black toasted each other. We'll paraphrase Groucho Marx here and say we wouldn't want to be a part of any club full of black-clad hipster doofuses that would have us.
The How Can We Miss You If You Won't Go Away? Ad
