Heh - weak. I bet there was a huge bidding war between the big beer companies for this. I wonder how much Heineken shelled out....
That's part of the shame, not only is it a crap beer but it's selling out
ah, the bond films have basically been long commercials for years now. £10 says that Brewdog start a new advertising campaign with James as a Blofeld-style Bond villain railing against Bond's choice of fizzy lager. Black dog instead of a white cat- this shit really does write itself. They can have that one on me in exchange for beer.
No!No!No!No! Stop getting Bond wrong!
I wouldn't mind as much if they had him drink a decent beer to advertise it, but honestly, Heineken...? Bah!
Supppperrrr weak. I don't give a crap what beer it is, I just hate when they take classics and put product placements in them. Haven't really been watching them since Golden Eye but still.
Nothing wrong with Bond drinking beer. Löwenbräu, Red Stripe, Franziskaner, Miller High Life have all been supped by him. But it's context-dependent. And Heiniken is surely a bit too shabby a beer for Bond.
Corporate film companies making corporate movies will only ever want corporate product placement. Its just the way it is.
How is any of this good news? Bond doesn't drink beer. And that is the way it should be.
Because it would be awesome to see him kick back with a pint o' bitter (they've made Bond so shit already by casting Daniel Craig that throwing a Bristolian/West Country accent on top of the beer wouldn't hurt)
I think Craig is one of the best Bonds in a long time personally.
Nah, he's a good action/fighty type actor but he lacks the subtleness, the suave-ness and the humour that other Bonds have had.
guess we will agree to disagree.
Howsabout ditching Daniel Craig, making Cheryl Cole the first female James Bond
and her signature drink will be a bottle of Newcastle Brown Ale poured into a half pint glass, canny. LMAO
At least we like similar music, judging what your avatar says
ah man, you shot me like!
Aw the blissful sound of our Cheryl's voice:
Give ower y'a kiddin?
Ya taakin shite!
A car crash of the visual and aural.
No wonder they have got him drinking Heineken, the man's a pussy compared to Jason Bourne!
Jason Bourne never goes on a mission without a suitcase of vintage Cantillon....
That just goes to prove that Heineken does not refresh the parts Real ale does. Shit! Just got a phone call from Buckingham P. Guess what, I am not getting my knighthood now. Me and my big mouth
