New Heineken Ad Is Awesome Except For One Weird Fail

The SwitchI’m sure by now a lot of you crazy kids have already seen the new Heineken “Switch” ad, which features possibly the raddest bar I’ve ever seen in my life.

For those of you who haven’t, the video is posted below. For those that have, I have only one question – why the hell did they decide to include an Amy Winehouse look-a-like in the ad?

Last time I checked, Amy shuffled off this mortal coil nearly two years ago, why resurrect her for the sake of a beer ad? Bad Heineken. But the part with the piano guy at the end of the ad saved it for me.


The Amy Winehouse Post

Amy Winehouse  Nice Photos  3Throughout most of her life, I wished Amy Winehouse would just hurry up and die already. For nearly three years she dominated local and international tabloids, every image of her somehow looking worse than the last.

It was like one of those wildlife documentaries where the film makers follow some poor, sick animal that’s dying in the wild and instead of helping it, they just film it getting weaker and weaker until it croaks.

It was clear to me that there was absolutely no hope for her. Her life degenerated to the point where all she seemed capable of doing was getting totally wasted and babbling incoherently like a bergie on a tik binge.
