No Habla Espanol

One of the major downsides of watching the Super Bowl in Spanish (Hell no, this ain't a complaint - unless my beloved Browns are vying for the Lombardi trophy, I'll take the sun and surf any freakin' Super Bowl Sunday), is that we missed the much-anticipated commercials.

We did see a ton of Mexican ads. Surprising to me was the very small number of commercials that were simply re-makes or dubbed versions of U.S. ads. All beers and margaritas aside, I recall that the most prevalent advertisements were all part a bizarre "live" campaign for some sort of fruit juice. Each one featured a Latina hottie and a very white-looking dude reporting about this juice. Often they would be surrounded by civilians wearing t-shirts with a Mitsubishi logo. Don't ask. No habla espanol.

Thanks to the glory of the Internets and a wireless connection at the compound, I was able to catch up on all of the ads I missed. Some were fun, but color me underwhelmed.

Then lo and behold, the geniuses of Miller High Life came through with this:



I've always admired this campaign. And how long do you think before our favorite beer dude is starring in his own sitcom on one of the lesser networks?

If Obama or Hillary gets elected you can expect much more Spanish in our society.

Better take a Spanish class!
