Jameson: The Finish Line

Check out this amazing new ad from Jameson Irish Whiskey starring Dominic West. It clocks in at 10 minutes but it is well worth it. The short film is the end product of Jameson's "First Shot" screenwriting competition in which the winning writer got to see his vision come to life on screen.

Was That a GlenKnolls Bottle in an Episode of "Scandal"?

Here is your first ever scotch sighting from the hit ABC series "Scandal" starring Kerry Washington. Unfortunately, the scotch is yet another fake. This particular sighting marks the fourth appearance of mystery malt known as GlenKnolls.  It has appeared in an episode of "The People V. O.J. Simpson" as well as two episodes of "Modern Family". In each scene the label on the actual bottle itself is barely visible but after enlarging a few screenshots it is no longer completely indecipherable.

Another GlenKnolls Sighting in "Modern Family"

GlenKnolls appears in an Episode of "The People V. O.J. Simpson"

The clip above is from season 6 episode 13 entitled "The Box". Keep sending in these amazing sightings and we'll keep posting them. Hopefully the next few post will feature real brands and maybe these phoney baloneys will someday be phased out once and for all.

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.
