Here's a Great Commercial for The Glenfiddich 21 Year Old Gran Reserva


My only complaint about this commercial is that it's too short.  Check out the making-of video below to see how this innovative ad was created.  I assumed that (like everything nowadays) it was CGI effects as opposed to practical in-camera effects.  Most impressive.

Johnnie Walker Red Label in "Inherent Vice"



It's hard to believe that it has been nearly 3 years since our last Red Label sighting.  Over the last 4 years we've featured the old JW Red being enjoyed by everyone from John Hamm, to Ryan Reynolds, to Angelina Jolie.  Even Superman himself has been known to have a sip of this classic blend.  Not sure why it hasn't been popping up more frequently in recent years.

The scene above is from the 2014 Paul Thomas Anderson film Inherent Vice.  Look for it about an hour and 25 minutes in.  Screenshots and artwork below. 

Thanks to Meleklerin Payi for the sighting.
