The *real* World Cup Beer scandal.

I understand Troglopundit’s amused attitude towards provincial views on guerrilla advertising – the short version is that South Africa is arresting people and getting fairly upset over a squad of thirty or so pretty blond women suddenly wearing orange miniskirts at a soccer game, said miniskirts apparently actually being an advertisement for a brewery – but my amusement ended with this line:

…Budweiser is the official beer of the World Cup…


BUDWEISER?  They’re making soccer fanatics drink BUDWEISER at this thing?  And the rest of the world hasn’t declared war on the United States yet?

And they say that the age of miracles has passed.

    Well, it depends. Is this the US version, or the version from the Czech Republic, brewed in Budvar? That version is actually pretty good.

  • Lance says:

    That Budweiser American Ale is pretty good, too.

    I’m convinced nobody in South Africa is able to think rationally, what with all the noise from those damned plastic horns.
