    Default Jim Beam and Van Halen in Australia

    Tonight while surfing away I had the old TV on in the corner.
    Suddenly I hear Eruption coming from the box. There was a Jim Beam add on the TV promoting the new "Barrel Can" which has just gone on sale here in Oz. Has this been on in the states? Or is it an Australian thing?


    Two things to ponder though ...
    Makes me now rethink my allegiance to Scotch..
    Why didn't Jack Daniels get in and use Van Halen?

    Couldn't have been the original 'Eruption' used, unless they wanted lawsuits from Ed and Co.

    Will keep a look out for that ad.

    Wayne Campbell: Um, uh...Aerosmith & Pearl Jam!
    Garth Algar: Ha ha ha ha ho!
    Bobby: Who else?
    Garth: Uh, me...and...and Wayne...
    Wayne: ...and uh...VAN HALEN!!!
    Garth: Wow. Van Halen. Who else?
    Bobby: Yeah, who else?
    Wayne: Uh, an old man fashioning a kayak out of a log?

    Thanks BOMBER, I've been drinking scotch for the past few years now. I had my bourbon stage in my early 20's. Now that I am a respectable member of society I now drink the old stuff. Give me 12 years minimum, single malt straight up. No ice or water for me. The Scots spent 100's of years getting the water out, why should I put it back in!

    Here in the U.S., every few years The Jim Beam company manufactures a canned drink, usually mixed with cola, in attempts to boost sales by making it available in conveniance stores, where Beam cannot be sold. It usually dissappears after a few months.

    I wonder if this is the same ploy, only exported to Australia?

    I just saw this ad tonight, sounds more like it's done electronically on computers as opposed to someone ripping it off lick for lick on guitar.

    Still, sounds pretty neat! Be a good ad to rival the Hilux ones that cover 'Thunderstruck'.

    Should be. But it's usually the stubbies that are sold in the pubs now I find. I'm sure they still sell the cans in the bottle shops.
