Miller High Life -- Odyssey

Check out the AS in this ad! LOL, I love this ad campaign!!!

YouTube - Miller High Life--Odyssey

When I get my trailer done, I have to get an old station wagon with the fake wood on the sides to pull it, what a 70's classic!!!

A cute commercial. That's a mid to late 1980's Mercury Grand Marquis Colony Park wagon pulling the trailer.

I think they should have used a vintage AS.

I agree that a vintage Airstream would have been nicer, but I still thought it was great.

Nice ad!!

I am not ready to hit the road today, however, may just have to get a Miller and sit in my trailer to get in the right "mind set".

-yeah, they shoulda used vintage since everything else in that spot was...

- not so sure it's a 'commercial' though, at almost three minutes it seems more like maybe to be shown before a movie at the cinemaplex (?)...

- I've always liked that Barry Goldwater quote, but, man, it's possibly the most easily manipulated quote ever. You could literally change it to mean almost any activity you had in mind, across the entire spectrum from noble to despicable. (and I'm paraphrasing here "extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice" and PLEASE no FLAMES, no FIGHTS, no ARGUMENTS on either side of the political divide just because I mentioned this OK? thanks, you may resume sipping now ... :=)

- it is a pretty cool spot, all in all, and its good to be reminded just how many vacation destinations are waiting for us right in our own great big old backyard of a country...

OH sure, you ruined my day = well, actually, since it's raining at the moment, you kinda made it. While watching the Miller vid and then checking out some others on the list I hit on this site which is one of about 60 and now I'm tied to my computer for quite a while. This guy has a swack of these on here.

YouTube - oldies but goodies, pt. 5 - a time sweep of number one hits

Thanks, this is neat stuff too. Not as much fun as a Miller, but one could always be enjoying and the tunes too.

Barry
