I Just Plain Love This Ad

Heineken The Entrance

Heineken The Entrance

Call me old-fashioned, but although I have a DVR, I do still watch live TV.  And I watch the commercials.  Granted, I watch many of them on mute, but occasionally one breaks through the pack of blah blah ads and brings joy to my cynical ad-watching. It also doesn’t hurt that the ad in question is for a beer that I already dig.

So I am talking about the newest commercial for Heineken, “The Entrance”.  Guy goes to a bar, fun and awesomeness ensue- and a Duffy-esque singer sings.  I like beer ads that show people having a great time without resorting to testosterone-fueled debauchery (the peaceful Corona ads on the beach are also great for this reason, though sadly, I hear they’re on their way out).  I like ads that make you feel happy. The party in this commercial is one I want to go to. I raise my glass to the folks at Heineken for approving this enjoyable ad.  Sing it out loud! (Seriously, does anyone know who the singer is or what she is singing?)

    Whoops, that The Golden Age by Asteroids, not Duffy. Sorry!
