Found the director of the new Sam adams commercials

likefunny

I like them. We should all be f*cking thrilled when a client in 2020 has the courage to make something funny and cultural. And, humbly, any creative asking what the message of a beer ad is should retire. You don’t understand what your job is.

Agreed 1000%! All of you bashers, get over yourselves. "any creative asking what the message of a beer ad is should retire" Yup!

Amazingly bad, sure.

I think they’re great as regional work. The joke wouldn’t hit very hard anywhere other than the NE.

I made this campaign with my partner! Been waiting for this thread since May. Hell yea! Can confirm actor & director are from the region. And producer. And strategist. And me. And Goodby. It was a real meeting of the massholes. Round 1 intros the character. Round 2 will push the humor. Round 3 will be a space reboot like Archer. Thanks for noticing this stuff. We don’t have the media budget of the big brewing conglomerates, happy this made a splash. Pick up a sixer & a scratch off for me. Sam 76 is my favorite. Slainte, as Bill said.

I love it and I’m from NY 🤣 Which came first this or the SNL Bill Burr skit?

Bullshit. At the :19 second mahk, he calls it a “lager”. No way your cousin from Boston does that. Call it a Bahston lahgah, lagah, or laga, but you sure as shit don’t call it a Boston LaGER.

I like ‘em. I don’t know what else you people want from a beer ad. Maybe horses or puppies would do the trick.

Didn’t Direct TV or someone else do a Boston accent/vernacular thing around 2014?

And the SNL skit which I think had some characters show up in Super Bowl spot. Hopper came first and is still the funniest IMO. But it’s a fairly tired gag at this point.

It’s fine. Feels almost like student work, if I’m being honest.

Sam Adams beer sucks so I instantly was annoyed with this guy. Mediocre beer, mediocre commercial. Only last year’s Bud Lite Super Bowl commercials would make me want to switch beers

like

I already stated what beer company ran good spots: Bud Lite. They’ve proved beer ads don’t have to suck.

The Budweiser Wedding Toast spot was so much better. Same gag, but several years earlier. And this character comes across as a jackass, but not a loveable one. I don’t want to drink what that guy is drinking. The jokes aren’t smart either. These are a C at best.

Just watched the Budweiser Wedding Toast spot. It’s kind of gross.

1. Sam Adams is one of the best beers out there. And you can trust me on that one b/c I’m from Boston. 2. The commercials are great. I just think that guy’s accent is suspect.

That isn’t the same argument at all. This is literally how campaigns work. Have you ever made a campaign? Something that’s run for multiple years? You seem to not understand. In any case - how about this. Just go on living your life, and when you see more of these spots in a year, and the non ad people in your life say things like “that Sam Adam’s commercial is funny, have you seen it?” You can think back to this moment.

Who did this ad? Was it Arnold?

It could have been really good but the performance and execution are just sort of eh. And yeah his accent....... they should have picked someone more stereotypical to make the self parody come through. Mass is a big state and even Boston has a lot of variation in the accent (just like London and the UK).

Wicked pissah

I don’t understand them. But I also am not familir with Boston in general.

Yeah but what’s the message? Sam Adams is as Boston as your annoying Boston cousin?

Thanks for pointing that out. I’m from Boston. Born and raised. And I hardly have any accent, but plenty of my friends growing up did, and they didn’t sound like him.

Talent and director are from Boston. Not sure that makes it more or less legit, but feels worth noting.

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.

I am 35 years old, and I threw my desktop keyboard at my monitor and broke both. I did this because I was playing a videogame and I didnt finish the level I needed to in the correct amount of time.
