TGIF. Am I right? And why is Friday so great?
Fridays are the best because you can have a cheeky beverage or two without having to worry about dealing with your colleagues when you’re hungover tomorrow. You can just let it all hang out.
So to get the party started, here’s B&T’s all time favourite booze ads.
We’re heavy on the beer ads since they bat above their weight but there’s a couple thrown in if you like a different kinda tipple.
