Anna Kendrick Slams Newcastle for Not Paying Her to Pose Nude in a Beer Commercial for a Beer She Doesn't Drink

There’s a backstory to this commercial involving a campaign by Newcastle promoting itself as the beer that couldn’t afford a Super Bowl beer commercial involving Reddit and maybe Keyshawn Johnson, but it’s not that interesting. Suffice to say, below is a behind-the-scenes spot with Anna Kendrick, who jokes about the commercial she was offered that Newcastle can’t even run because Newcastle can’t afford a Super Bowl commercial.

In it, she muses about what she would’ve done (pose nude) if the commercial had been made, wonders why she was even asked since she’s not “beer commercial hot,” and mourns the loss of the paycheck, since now she’s going to have to go back to indie movies for indie cred, and she can’t put indie cred into a stripper’s G-string.

Just watch the damn thing. It’s marvelous.

    The Superbowl? Is that still a thing?

    Ohhhhhhh! Do you see what I did there?

  • xhikari

    "Beer commercial hot"? Anna Kendrick just made Newcastle "Beer commercial hot"!

  • Dave Dorris

    Wow. Between Anna Kendrick and Jennifer Lawrence...

    what? I got stuck right there.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Hmmm, Newcastle Brown Ale.[/homermode]

  • lowercase_ryan


    so that really just happened.

  • Alberto Cox Délano

    I would love this commercial, except for the fact that Heineken stopped distributing Beamish stout in the US because they wanted to push Newcastle here, even though they are two different kinds of beer and don't taste remotely similar. Therefore, Newcastle can suck it.

  • Guest

    I would never feel bad about calling ANNA HOT. Life is oh so very short and you are oh so very HOT Anna!

    I would totally Shipton her if I was ever lucky enough to meet her:

    *Crosses fingers that she's never seen Blink.

    **I'm glad the Pajiba Anna post drought is over (at least for today anyways).

  • bastich

    I wouldn't say no to more Carey Mulligan posts, either.

  • Ian Fay

    In a perfect world, Anna Kendrick would be the DEFINITION of beer commerical hot.

  • foolsage

    Eh, I dunno. There's room for a lot of different kinds of pretty.

  • Ok, I'm just gonna pop the cap off of an Ol' Brown Dog and imagine the commercial that might've been...

  • PerpetualIntern

    Is that a euphemism?

  • I've been told it's English slang. "Walking the Brown dog" is code for "sneak off to the pub for a couple of pints."

  • Take it however you like. :-)

  • bastich

    Did...did I hear that right? She's open to nude scenes?


  • Uriah_Creep

    I"m volunteering ALL THE BUCKS!

  • I loved me some Newcastle before this, but now I shall drink no other (until Anna endorses something else).

  • Enrique del Castillo

    That was great. I loved that "Hot to the kind of guys who feel bad about calling a girl hot" line.

    Am I insane to think that Anna Kendrick looks like a bit like Tina Fey? (specially in the header pic)

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    She will totally play her in the biopic in ten to fifteen years.

  • Stephanie C. Bois

    Put some glasses on her and tadaaa!

  • dizzylucy

    I was just thinking the same thing, never noticed it before now.

  • Xochitl Herrera Villarreal

    No, you're not insane. I think it's her expression mostly.

  • NateMan

    That was better than any Superbowl commercials will actually be.

  • foolsage

    That was glorious.

  • Also, this:

    "Hot to the kind of guys who feel bad about calling a girl hot"

    If that doesn't describe Pajiba's view of her to a T, I don't know what does. Has she been reading this site?

  • Dennis Albert Ramirez

    yeah when she said that, i thought "oh my god, it's like she's talking directly to ME", but then took it back because i felt bad about presuming anything about her

    ad infinitum

  • NateMan

    I don't know who actually wrote that line, but s/he is a fucking genius who deserves better than writing beer commercials.

  • God, I love her. LOVE.
