Enjoy WellDoneFillet Responsibly

Has anyone seen that new Hennessy Brandy advert? Makes me want to vomit. It's just so bloody tragic. Here have a look for yourself, if you can be bothered. See what did I tell you? Vomit inducing artsy pish. I'm not falling for this one bit...
The Marketing supremos at Hennessy want people who look like this to drink Brandy...


But the people that actually drink brandy look like this....


And those people just aren't cool enough for the Ad-Men. I don't think I've served brandy to anyone under 40 in the last 18 years. The thing about brandy is that it should be discovered when you are a bit older, when you have the time to enjoy it's delights. What use is brandy to coked up skinny people in lycra? None what so ever! Brandy is for those who enjoy a slower pace of life. For those who know the value of a good pair of shoes and the value of their house. What next, alcopop brandy? Some sort of brandy and Ribena mix for the kids?

The whiskey makers are at it too. Their adverts have lots of cool 30-somethings drinking their whiskey like it was water. There they are in their Aran Sweater's gathered round a a roaring fire knocking the Tullamore Dew into them with no care of the consequences. Me arse! Most people I know under 30 who drink whiskey end up throwing up, beating up, and throwing up again. Pisses me off. But not so much as the bit at the bottom of alcohol adverts that says, "Enjoy your Crazy Brew Responsibly." Ha! Bullshit.....

And whilst we are on about bullshit, journalists are at it again with the holier than thou stuff. Belfast's Sunday Life ran a story under the, in no way alarmist, headline "ULSTER COKE SHOCK." Apparently people here take coke, and they take it in the toilets of their favourite bars. Shock? I don't think so. And if I'm not mistaken they ran the same bloody story a year or two ago. Gimme a break. Now I'm not saying that the journo who cobbled together that piece enjoys a line or twelve of the Bolivian Marching Powder but I know a fair few hacks who do. They visited 10 bars and found traces of coke in 7 of them. In one bar they didn't find any drugs in the toilets but they did find traces of coke in the disabled toilets. So what were disabled punters to do whilst Columbo was swabbing the walls? Eh?

I'm feeling tired, yet again, and in the mood for a fight. Where's my whiskey....? The good story from last weekend is coming soon, honest.....
