Will Ferrell, Old Milwaukee Pitchman, Returns to the Airwaves…In Sweden


You may remember that a few months back a couple of ads popped up in random, tiny TV markets featuring one Mr. Will Ferrell speaking on behalf of Old Milwaukee. This wasn't a plan hatched by that swill maker; it was just something he did on his own and they were obviously fine with. And now our favorite canned beer pitchman is back, this time in Stockholm, laughing at the silly Swedish language. On Swedish TV. Do they even sell Old Milwaukee in Sweden? I hope not, because it just makes this ad all the more absurd.
