A Fantastic Johnnie Walker Blue Label Appearance in the Season 2 Premiere of "True Detective"


The one you've been waiting for.  True Detective season 2 is finally here and it really delivers.  The premiere episode is not to be missed, if for no other reason than this amazing scene which takes place near the end.  The clip above has been edited down a bit to avoid spoilers but you may want to wait until after you've watched the full episode before checking it out.  

This is the most Blue Label I've ever seen a person drink in one sitting.  I'm actually kinda jealous.

Will Ferrell Sips Johnnie Walker Blue Label in "Get Hard"


Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart definitely brought their A-game to this 2015 comedy.  The film only got a 29% rating on Rotten Tomatoes for some reason but I found it enjoyable from beginning to end.  The Johnnie Walker Blue Label sighting takes place near the beginning and and the scene also features Craig T. Nelson.  Also, since the most famous scotch scene of all time features Will Ferrell as well, I have reposted it at the bottom.

Megan Draper Drinking J&B in "Mad Men"



Here's a short scene from season 7 episode 9 of AMC's Mad Men which features Don's ex-wife Megan (Jessica Pare) sipping some J&B.  We've had appearances by Chivas, Cutty Sark, Balvenie, Johnnie Walker, and Glenlivet in previous episodes.  Could this be the last scotch sighting form this series ever? Stay tuned.  And click here to check out the previous Mad Men posts.

Entourage's Johnny Drama Repping Johnnie Walker on "Jimmy Kimmel Live"


Once in a blue moon the universe drops something amazing in my lap.  This is one of those rare instances.  One of my favourite TV characters of all time promoting one of the greatest beverages of all time.  This hilarious new Johnnie Walker ad features Kevin Dillon (aka Johnny Chase aka Johnny Drama) appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live and announcing that he is the "face of Johnnie Walker".  Be sure and watch the whole thing to the end and, more importantly, be sure to drop what ever your doing and head out to see the long-awaited Entourage movie which is now in theatres.  


I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Dillon a couple of years ago and we chatted about his character over a bottle of Highland Park (there was no Blue Label anywhere in sight, unfortunately) and had a few laughs.  Can't say enough about what a great dude he was.  Kind of like his character but more intelligent and less cocky.

Johnny Walker definitely did their homework when deciding which character would be great for their brand promotion.  Here's proof.  The clip below is a scene from Entourage which aired back in August of 2010 and features Drama pledging his loyalty to Blue Label way back then.



BONUS SIGHTING!  Here's another scotch sighting from an Entourage episode which aired exactly one year later.  This one finds a very intoxicated Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven) diving to the bottom of a bottle of Chivas while his life is going down the toilet.  It is worth watching if for no other reason than he drops the F-bomb 7 times in 24 seconds.  Enjoy!
