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.
Did we miss your fav?

This ad has won more awards than our editor-in-chief has had long lunches. Possibly the best beer ad of all time.

A hard earned thirst needs a big cold beer. And the best cold beer? Just watch the ad.
When a dog meets a horse
According to Time magazine and media metrics firm iSpot, this ad for Budweiser was the most successful spot that ran during the Super Bowl earlier this year. It’s also been nommed for an Emmy.
You can’t go past the classic cop chase.
I start pure
If Pharrell is so happy, why isn’t he smiling in this ad for Smirnoff?
I feel like a Toohey’s
Remember when pit stains and a moustache were key prerequisites to playing cricket?
A XXXX sure is coming on
There’s something weirdly sexual about the slow motion sequences in this XXXX ad from the ‘80s.
And speaking of slo mo
For the love of beer!
This one’s for the rugby league fans
Here we go again…
Because people in QLD drink beer too
We know what we like about Queensland, right?
Just to prove they know how to make beer ads in Brisbane
If this ad was released today, it’d be the most complained about ad on television for it’s quota of overly exposed arse cheeks.

The Bundy BEAR
And just because some people prefer rum over beer.
