    I know Neil Patrick Harris is gay ... to each his own. But the ad seems nasty as hell and it shown all day long. Is this a joke or something that's said at cookouts for laughs? Somebody enlighten me.

    Always thought it was a double entendre... don't fall for the attempt at brain control.

    I get it and add the ad to my reasons for not buying the beer. #1 being it tastes lousy!

    It's bad, but it's not as bad as the new Dos Equis commercials. Although, I hated the original most interesting man commercials too.

    Seriously? Some of those were the best beer commercials in the last few years. Either I live under a rock, or you need a sense of humor.

    Most beer commercials suck, but there's a special place in the lowest circle of hell for whoever creates the Anheuser-Busch ads, and whatever executive at A. B. approves them. What surprises me about them is the utter lack of respect the ads display for their customers. They seem to view the average A. B. consumer as a fifteen year old boy sneaking beers out of dad's fridge in the garage.

    I just think they played out, and became predictable, really fast. Like, by the time the first one I saw had finished I was thinking that I was going to want to throw that pretentious prick off a cliff. And now, with his hipster son popping up, ugh, FML.

    Eh.. A no big deal commercial playing off Harris orientation I suppose. Surprised he did it, of yea they paid him to flip the meat.

    You can't see it because of the angle, but the guy on the right is grilling his penis.

    What's wrong with a simple grilling joke.

    I thought NPH was sorta funny in the Harold and Kumar stoner comedy saga. Not a fan of him for the rest.

    Now, I did enjoy the Dos Equis commercial even though I've never tried their beer.

    I want Duvel and Moortgat to make a great beer commercial in America. Oh the big $$$ they will need.

    if you BBQ. and I don't mean throw a hot dog on the grill bbq, but smoke brisket most of the day, you'd understand. drives me crazy when people have to walk up and open the smoker and prod.

    I remember the first time I saw the backwards "R" in Toys "R" Us. An attention grabber.

    So, that commercial (which I do consider stupid BTW), is simply meant to be an attention grabber, get people talking.. you know "at the water cooler".

    Which we are.

    Bottom-line: You're all talking about it, so they win.
    Nothing. So let's move on...
