Judd Apatow Unveils Ron Burgundy's "Scotchy Scotchy Scotch" Ice Cream on Jimmy Fallon

As a die hard fan of both scotch and Ben & Jerry's I cannot wait to get my filthy hands on this stuff.  Judd Apatow appeared on the October 24th episode of Late Night With Jimmy Fallon to promote Anchorman II: The Legend Continues, and while he was there, Jimmy broke out a tub of this (presumably) scrumptious tub of buttersccotchy goodness.

Check out the clip as well as the latest Anchorman 2 trailer.  And don't forget to watch this classic scotch sighting from the original anchorman film.

Johnnie Walker Double Black In Homeland

The season premiere of the Showtime series Homeland marks the TV debut of Johnnie Walker Double Black.  Frankly, it's about time.  The sighting occurred at the 26 minute mark in the episode entitled Tin Man is Down.  Check out the video and some screenshots.

Leonardo Dicaprio's Jim Beam Commercial

If seeing an A-list hollywood star in a quirky commercial from a foreign country comes as a surprise, it shouldn't.  There are countless celebrities who have cashed in abroad by making commercials which are never meant to be seen by western audiences.  YouTube is filled with whisky commercials featuring stars such as Keanu Reeves, Sharon Stone, Sean Connery, and many more.

This Jim Beam bourbon ad from Japan is short but its pretty entertaining none the less.  It is also, believe it or not, the first time Leonardo Dicaprio has been featured on this site.

Christina Hendricks Stars in Two New Johnnie Walker Commercials

Here's two quick Johnnie Walker commercials starring the greatest brand ambassador of all time, Christina Hendricks.  They're basically the exact same ad except one is for Black Label, and one is for red.  Stay tuned for a great Video of Ms. Hendricks enjoying some black label with Jimmy Kimmel coming soon.

As I'm sure you know, Christina is the amazing actress whose brilliant portrayal of secretary turned partner Joan Holloway on the AMC series Mad Men is many viewer's main reason for never missing an episode.

Check out the TV spots and some promotional JW photos below.

Parks & Recreation Delivers the Best Lagavulin Sighting Ever!

The clip you're about to watch is one of those scenes which seems tailor-made for fans of this site.  I won't even waste your time describing what happens here.  You'll just have to see it for yourself.  There have been four Parks & Recreation Lagavulin sightings in the past but they all pale in comparison to the latest one.

The video contains various scenes from the sixth season premiere episode edited together.  This was one of the funniest episodes of the series and is a must see, even for the casual Parks & Recreation fan.

UPDATE:  Just found another Lagvulin sighting from way back in season three.  Stay tuned!!!

The Third "How I Met Your Mother" Glen McKenna Scene

Looks like another great show is coming to an end.  That's right, the final season of How I Met Your Mother is upon us.  Thank goodness they saw fit to give us one last sighting of the mysterious Highland single malt known as Glen McKenna.  I personally don't know what I would've done without one last peek at those delicious highland clumps.  For a little history on this sublime whisky, one need look no further than the two previous sightings which can be found here and here.  Strangely enough, the first Glen McKenna sighting is actually the most popular post in the 2.5 year history of this site.  Not too shabby for a scotch which doesn't even exist.  The popularity of the Glen McKenna clips on this site are a testament to the connection How I Met Your Mother has to its die hard fan base.  It is a show filled with more inside jokes, quotable lines, and drinking game caliber tropes & trivia than any other sitcom in the history of television.

The third and final Glen Mckenna appearance takes place about 10 minutes into episode 3 from this season.  The episode is entitled "Last Time in New York".  Check out the video and some screenshots below.  I've heard rumblings on the interwebosphere that there are more sightings from How I Met Your Mother but have come up with nothing thus far.  Any tips will be greatly appreciated.
