Will Ferrell's Old Milwaukee ad for Super Bowl 2013: Take that, GoDaddy
Will Ferrell has become quite the spokesman for Old Milwaukee beer in recent years. He filmed a spot for them on the banks of the Mississippi River in Davenport, Iowa. He also filmed a Super Bowl spot in 2012 that aired only in North Platte, Neb.
Now the funnyman is back with what is possibly a send-up on the GoDaddy ad that featured model Bar Refaeli making out with a nerd. Only this time, it's Will Ferrell making out with a middle-aged Asian woman as a Chinese song (identified on Reddit as "Mother, where are you?" by Liu Feng Bing).
Ferrell's ad only aired in small towns in Texas, Oklahoma and Montana, though it is sure to go viral on the internet. Whereas GoDaddy's make-out ad got voted worst Super Bowl ad of 2013 by the Zap2it readers.
Reportedly, Ferrell is not paid for the ads. He says he does them because he was "given creative freedom to revive a brand and shoot crazy fun commercials."
