I can't imagine any American company running an ad like this, but Strongbow (a British hard cider, if I'm not mistaken) runs this add (and a tip of the hat to Bruce Smith for finding this):
It's at times like this that I'm proud of my fellow Englishmen!Actually, it's quite ironic that a distributist blog should link to an ad for Strongbow cider, as they are now owned by one of the world's largest multi-national drinks conglomerates (Heineken/Carlsberg). Once upon a time they were owned by Bulmer's Cider, based in the Herefordshire English cider belt - a regional firm with a local workforce. That ended years ago with takeover after takeover after takeover. You know, bigger is better and all that stuff. The funny thing is, Strongbow's present owners will have been working hand-in-glove with international bankers in recent years to acquire their drinks empire. Still, it's a satisfying 53 seconds!
Guild Master: the irony is noted, but one cheer to them anyway for even acknowledging that the little people have been screwed over by capitalism. Like John says, it's hard to imagine an ad like this running on America's corporate media networks.
The message is great - I added Romanian subtitles for a Romanian audience.
