No, but a few weekends ago with my wife I was a Whiskey Mountain Climber. We also brought along flat Stanley:

Donini I think one of those blokes could be Jody's dad.

It's evocative of Rockies climbing in the early 50s. Millennials dig the throwback vibe, maaaaaan.

I do like to carry a sh*tload of wood for the obligatory summit bonfire.

I thought that was Micronut for a minute...but then realized it couldn't be as those guys were drinking their dinner, not chowing down on 5-course gourmet Micro-fare.

I would bet that there is a demographic out there that is just loving what that commercial is trying to sell. I don't get it but I know they are out there. And to me, that is not a good or bad thing. I liked whiskey good or bad, who am I to say.

That was one big ass piton he was driving, or was it a tent stake?

at least it is relevant ad content.

Most of the time most adverters get it wrong. The great promise of the 'tailor ads to your preferences' horsesh#t, got it right by a TV ad after studying demographics. wooda thunk? No need for cookies trailing your internet steps.

We were just outside Tincup, Colorado, when a buddy lost his brakes after a rock took off the line on his Electra-Glide. We had fun fabricating a new fitting with a couple of rocks. Could have used some of that there Tincup Whiskey then.
