    Consider what the ad is for. Beer ads always show people that aren't satisified unless it's a beer. If they showed people enjoying fine wine, I'd expect it to be a wine ad.

    Just like an ad for Chevy isn't going to show people who are perfectly happy taking the bus.

    I thought the point of the video is wine isn't refreshing. I
    enjoy wine, but I don't consider it refreshing.


    Compared to moonshine it is refreshing.

I can't believe this is on the air.

    But I've noticed over the past year or so that "APPLE CIDERS" and "APPLE ALES" have been a trending product that is competing with the "GRAPE" (wines and related)" beverage industry.

    The video made a mockery of "WINE"...as it shows the guy drinking it grape stained teeth. Then the Apple Ale falls out of sky squashing the wine.

    So to me it was nothing more than competing products creating catchy ads like the "Chick Fil A" ad showing cows holding up a sign that says:

    What racist cows!

    No it's not racist towards "white" people because you forgot the first rule of racism... you can't be racist to or about a white person..... only people of other ethnicity's.

    The creator made different peoples or races if you will and gave them their own lands to live on. This is out of balance right now but in time some event will put things back where they should be and whites will live in Europe, blacks in Africa, Asians in Asia and Native Americans in The Americas.. This is the way it started and this will be again.

    um which creator are you talking about because im not familiar with that story in Christianity, Judaism or Islam religions

    dont believe that takes place in Hinduism or Buddhism either but i could be wrong

    and between those thats probably like 80+% of all religious people right there
