|Ok so I've assaulted by the Sam Adams commercials trying to get us to write commercials for them. Unfortunately part of the rules and regs would require me to actually film a concept commercial.
The hardest part about that would be getting someone to wear the costumes.
Still I'm tempted to submit it anyway...
The scene is a neighborhood bar. Seated near the end is a man dressed in dark colors and wearing a Van Dyke. He's happily passing time humming or tapping at the bar, From off camera, another man sits next to him.
The second man is dressed in gaudy Lycra complete with cape. The first man stares at the new arrival for a few seconds, possibly raising an eyebrow, but then continues as if this is not an uncommon thing.
The super hero sighs heavily. "Man, what a day."
"Pretty bad?" The first man responds casually.
"Bad? Let's see, today I rescued fourteen kittens out of trees, stopped nine armed robberies, saved two luxury liners from sinking and, oh yeah, diverted an asteroid from destroying life as we know it on this planet." The super hero rubs his forehead, "Today was insane."
The bartender delivers the first guy's Sam Adams. The super hero reacts, "Ooh, that looks great."
The first guy smiles, "Allow me." He calls over to the bartender, "Tommy! Another Sam Adams, and put it on my bill."
"Oh you don't have to do that." The super hero starts.
The first guy holds up a hand, "No, it's the least I can do."
The bartender arrives with the second Sam. The super hero just smiles and stares at the beer.
The first guy then points above the camera with a concerned look, "Tommy? Turn up the volume a second will you?"
From the TV we hear, "... most of downtown has been destroyed by the creature's rampage and it looks like it's making it's way toward the orphanage now."
The super hero looks up at the TV. "Aw, man!" He says, very annoyed. He sighs then leaves the bar.
Sam Adams tagline
First guy looking up at TV. We hear the announcer's excited account of AlphaGuy's battle against the creature, A third guy walks up, dressed very much like a cartoon super villain. He recognizes the first guy, "Hey! Krullux, how ya doin?" Third guy looks up at the TV, "Say, isn't that your creature?"
First guy slowly smiles and nods, "Oh, yeah.. I guess it is."
