Where’s the Party At?

leave a comment »

Did you know that what you see in commercials doesn’t happen in real life? News to me. I was under the impression that the minute anyone cracked open a can of Bud Light, a crowd of people would immediately rush into the room and a raging party would commence. I was wrong, and so was Richard Overton. He sued Anheuser-Busch for $10,000 with a claim of false advertising and “failure to deliver on its promises.”  Take this as a lesson advertisers, beware of what you show in your commercials. You don’t know how many Richard’s there are out there waiting for a party that is not going to start.
