Will Ferrell does an Endorsement

Will Ferrell is one of those actors you either love or hate.  His type of humor grates some people, and to others….it causes a belly laugh.

I happen to be one of those people who love him.  From Ricky Bobby, to Buddy the Elf to Prestige Worldwide……almost everything he does is classic.

Meanwhile, we sorta celebrity endorsements at S&B. 

The good would be Bill Murray (for Suntory), Willem Dafoe (for Jim Beam) or Sean Connery (in the classic Playboy Ads)

The bad would be my continual rant against P-Diddy.

When you combine the two, you have Ferrell doing something really special.

The ads are not the funniest thing, nor is the beer he is pitching great (Old Milwaukee), but the fact that he is doing 100% Free because he loves the brand and wants to promote it is something that the entitled in Hollywood (funny how the 99%ers never talk about them) should really take a look at.  Instead of worrying what is in his goody bag at the Oscars, flying first class to get somewhere or (heaven forbid) sharing a makeup trailer with someone else…..Will just believes in a product and says Give it a Try.

This truly is something we respect, as it is our mentality as well.  We don’t have sponsors here for a reason.  We want to be able to give honest opinions, and sometimes you feel compelled to overlook a product/service’s shortcomings if you are getting it for free.  The only time we ever ask for money, if for Charity.  That’s the way it should be if you love a product.

Maybe I’ll try some Old Milwaukee when I get back from London.  At least Will got my attention.

Well Done Mr. Ferrell – Cheers!
