Happy Independence Eve: Newcastle Ad

@NewCastle new #IfWeWon ad campaign is brilliant.  I love good ad campaigns.  I love great ad campaigns better.  Newcastle certainly has one in their Independence Day Eve campaign, starring British greats Stephen Merchant and Elizabeth Hurley.  Entertaining, comical and in true-British tradition, self-deprecating.  What I find even more interesting is the angst and anger of some Americans toward the campaign (see the "Apology" video below).  Lighten up.  We won.  That's what matters.  If nothing else, this campaign gives you a reason (regardless of how valid) to grab a Newcastle and toast a day early.  I will.  Cheers!

Happy Independence Eve, America!
