Some People Actually Want a Jim Beam Boycott Because of Mila Kunis



Jim Beam is one of the most popular bourbons in the country and one of the best selling in the world. So when the distillery makes the news, it’s usually because of its whiskey. However, spokeswoman Mila Kunis got herself (and Jim Beam) into the political fray after she revealed she’d been sending donations to Planned Parenthood in Vice President Mike Pence’s name.
While appearing as a guest on “Conan,” Kunis explained to host Conan O’Brien the practical joke was a way for her to express her disagreement with the vice president’s stance toward Planned Parenthood, contraception, and abortion. While Jim Beam hasn’t officially expressed any position on Planned Parenthood, Kunis’ advocacy for the reproductive healthcare provider led to what might be called a modicum of outrage on Twitter.

The aggrieved have started a #BoycottBeam campaign on Twitter, but an effective boycott seems dubious and pointless. Nevertheless, the tweets are pretty entertaining. NoMoreLiberals tweeted “After drinking Jim Beam for 30 years Im done. Your spokeswoman Kunis donates to Planned Parenthood in Prnce’s (sic) name. #BoycottBeam,” and Pickles n Cheese declared in a tweet “I will not drink another drop of Jim Beam! #BoycottBeam.”
As you can tell by the Twitter handles and the comments themselves, the #BoycottBeam initiative is unlikely to garner widespread support. Expect the bourbon to keep flowing from the distillery. Check out some of Kunis' Jim Beam Commercials in the video below.

With Blade Runner 2049, director Denis Villeneuve stayed true to the original film—right down to the whisky. In this video, he shares the creative process behind the bottle design for Johnnie Walker Black Label - The Director's Cut.




The First and Only "Monk" Scotch Sighting


The last time I had to dig this far down in the video barrel I used a Canadarm. It's been a while since you've been blessed with an honest to goodness scotch sighting so here's a mediocre clip of a fake brand from a decade old episode of a cancelled series. No need to thank me.  

This scene is from season 7 episode 2 entitled "Monk and the Genius. There is a very brief shot of the increasingly popular Stafford Twin Wood during a flashback. Check out the screenshot below incase it flies by too quickly to catch.

Here's a few other Stafford appearances from "How I Met Your Mother", "Ray Donovan", and "Californication".

Ryan Gosling & Harrison Ford Sip Scotch & Lose Their Sh*t During Hilarious interview



Good luck trying to keep a straight face while watching this interview. Ford and Gosling stopped by "This Morning" and drank some mini bar Johnnie Walker Black Label from vintage "Blade Runner" glasses. The lady conducting (or trying to conduct) the interview had them in stitches nearly the entire time.
