Tuesday Throwback: Jim Beam’s “The Girlfriend”

Jim Beam’s “The Girlfriend” ad is one that I kind of wish had been released when I was writing this blog, because I know it would get a ton of pageviews. It’s also sexist as hell, and a commercial that would never be made today. The “he can do whatever he wants” line is particularly cringeworthy. Despite the weirdly muddled accent of the girlfriend (Is she Latina? Eastern European?), she’s actually Australian. That makes sense though, since this was a commercial originally broadcast in Australia.
