    "Are ya THIRSTY... Angus?!? HAHAHAHAHA!"

    I don't know about you tough guys, but THIS lady creeps me the hell out! icon_eek.gif

    This commercial pops on during every other break. And I swear I've had at least three nightmares already -- thanks to ol' Spider Woman here!

    "Are you ready to take life... ssssseriouslslsly?"

    BrandingBacardi-owned Dewar’s created an ad and some prints featuring English actress Claire Forlani and her dominant Scottish accent with a rather threatening motto “Are you ready to take life seriously?“. Nothing scary in that you say? Watch the ad, you’ll see what I’m talking about.


    ((hides under Barcalounger))



    "Go back to sleep, Angus darling!" I'm like, "Who TF is Angus?!" icon_lol.gif



    And I really could do without that sound when she twists that bottle! icon_lol.gif

    I really gotta give it up to Dewar's though. To sell their whisky they merge the subtle "Please drink responsibly" with a woman who's clearly had just a bit too much of the product! icon_lol.gif

    The ads are really well done, quite artful. But man alive, that accent! I can't get that voice and that Fatal Attraction glance out of my head!



    Someone, please assure me there's a drag queen parody in the works somewhere! Or at least SNL!

    Doing some googledigging... apparently she's of British-Italian descent, BUT her husband from the past is from Scotland.

    No, his name's not Angus. icon_razz.gif Dougray Scott was a former James Bond replacement nominee and the bad guy in Mission Impossible II. According to Wiki, he was supposed to play Wolverine in X-Men but when MI:II went over schedule by a couple months, he got replaced by Hugh Jackman.

    Sounds like some good vocal coaching going on to me!

    All I get from these commercials is that Dewar's is for angry alcoholics.

    Isn't she walking through a chop shop, delivering another car she stole to be stripped for parts? Scotch for criminals?

    She looks like a more gaunt and feline Angelina Jolie.

    Guy Ritchie-inspired lady crime boss?

    There's a guy in the trunk of that car that reaches the chop shop, if anyone caught that.

    She probably has a couple burly escorts who could make that same cracking sound if you displeased her.

    I like.
