You thought that Obama photo shoot was opportunistic? Oh, brother, you ain’t seen nothing yet. I’ve heard some folks call this commercial “inspiring” or “game changing.” I dunno, you can judge for yourself. More of my cynicism after the video.

I mean, yes, it’s nice that this is a beer commercial that celebrates friendship over some sort of testosterone-fueled nonsense. It’s also lovely that these men can be both sensitive and physically strong. But I find the whole thing manipulative. And I’m usually the first to grab a tissue. What do you think? Is my heart blacker than a pint of plain?
