Earlier in the week we showed you the Will Ferrell Old Milwaukee commercial that Ferrell is apparently doing for FREE just because he loves the brand. Is Ferrell serious or is the beer brand getting played? From Adweek:
So, why is Will Ferrell doing local ads for Old Milwaukee? The company says he just loves the brand. “Will approached Old Milwaukee because he’s a big fan of the beer and thought it would be fun to make the commercials, and we couldn’t be more excited that he did,” Bryan Crowley, the CMO of Old Milwaukee parent Pabst Brewing, told the Quad-City Times (which was just as surprised by Ferrell’s move as anyone).
