The already infamous Beer-Commercial

Mono Rousseau, thanks a lot for the link :)

Here you can have a look at the already famous beer commercial that Vincent has done in New Zealand.

And I have to say - yes, nicely done for a commercial but now that I saw it and saw his role in it, I even less understand what all the fucking fuss was about. I mean, please....! "Could a kiwi actor have done just as well?" Any actor could have done that. It was just a choice to pick Vincent. But then again, with all the media attention they (the beer people) got because of that - maybe that also made them quite happy altogether. I mean, when does the shooting of an ad get such a big deal of attention?

Just wish he'd finally chop off that beard...

  1. Man, to live in a country where businesses/companies get shit for making their own CHOICES regarding ADVERTISING... I am so glad to be American. Sure, other people could have done that bit but it's not VG. Isn't business (and buying beer) about CHOICES? What a stupid country. That kind of criticism would never happen in America.

    VG looks nice.

  2. Don't patronize New Zealand. It only shows you don't know any better.

  4. I live in NZ and yes they made it big a deal over nothing. The actors Equity were embarrassing. And then the media picked it up because nothing much happens here. In fact if a old ladies handbag got stolen it would most likely make news.

  5. Yeah, see. I wasn't patronizing. Even if you got an NZ actor that looked exactly like VG and they somehow gave 110% or were better at shipping beer bottles it wouldn't be the same or even 'just as good.' NZ needs to step it up a notch or just shut up.

  6. I wonder if they filled the bottle with water, or if it was the first time he ever had a drink of alcohol.

  7. I bet the bottle was empty. He's that good.

  8. They usually use fake liquid. Still, the sip and acting refreshed - AH - it looks like it's done by someone who doesn't drink beer. It's OK though, he's better at other things like walking, running, and staring at people. By people I mean girls.

  13. Seriously, if I delete comments, I know it. And I don't delete any unless they include any kind of links for downloads and so on simply because I have to. I don't believe in deleting comments just because - I honestly, really honestly, have no clue where your comments went. I'm as surprised to find them gone as you are, believe it or not.

  14. Just checked - I hope it's just a blogspot mistake seriously. On the front page it says 12 Comments for the Schnabel thread, if you click on them there are only 5 (!) left. Now I'm pretty nervous about the possibility that someone might have hacked my account or is doing some bullshit here. Off to change my password...

  15. Sincere apologies Mel. It must be a case of someone reporting abuse via the link on the blogger bar. I've noticed comments disappearing before.

    Oh, look. And now there back. Hm, something crazy is going on.

  18. Gallo is generally a man of great taste but this is such a lame commercial, he must just look at it and laugh/cringe. The idea/technique of the darkness moving away is a total rip off of Spike Jonze's Adidas commercial from here in the States done years ago (its on youtube) but i guess wannabe commercial "directors" think people haven't seen it in New Zealand. Ironic that they rip off the technique for a commercial that is claiming to celebrate uniqueness, and then try and make up for it by getting someone like VG to star! Pathetic. Take the money and run Vincent from these lame advertising losers and make some proper films or music!!!
