Funnyman Will Ferrell did a Super Bowl ad for Old Milwaukee, but no one saw it.
That’s because, according to Deadspin, it only ran in North Platte, Nebraska. Why Old Milwaukee wouldn’t want to treat the rest of the country to this awesomeness, we’re not sure, but it isn’t the first time it’s happened.
Ferrell has done two other Old Milwaukee ads, but they only aired in one market too. One ran in Davenport, Iowa and the other ran in Terre Haute, Indiana.
Here’s last night’s ad.

Premise of Video: Will Ferrell for Old Milwaukee. Nothing else needs to be said.
Climax of Video: Catch the can. Open the can. Look manly. Awesome!
Conclusion: If the goal was to produce a commercial and make it go viral, then well done. We think Old Mil should run these nationally, though.

My first thought was, "I don't believe you," but then...
There was a lot of flipping during Madonna's Super Bowl half-time show last night. One of the most publicized was was the middle finger of M.I.A.
But then there was some guy in a toga who just did them on a tightrope.
In what had to be the weirdest part of the show, a toga-clad dancer performed on a tightrope and— who at first glance looked like Will Ferrell, then later...

Sorry, I shouldn’t say no one. Because clearly someone with a television from 1965 and a camcorder from 1982 saw Will Ferrell’s Old Milwaukee ad.
I do appreciate Old Milwaukee’s overhauled advertising pitch. They’re basically saying our beer is so ******* terrible that its legitimately funny to drink it.
