Will Ferrell has filmed several amusing spots for Old Milwaukee, which is just one of the many flavors of swill produced by the famed Pabst Brewing Company. However, while most celebrities are first approached by a company and offered money to shill their product, Ferrell appears to have done this purely out of the goodness of his heart.
According to Kegworks, Ferrell approached the company and offered to film them some commercials in Davenport, Iowa free of charge, and rather than question his motives, the company of course said yes. Why did Will Ferrell do it? Did he have some great ideas for beer commercials he felt the need to carry out immediately, or does he just really like Old Milwaukee? Or does he for some reason feel it would be in his best interests for Old Milwaukee to owe him a favor? Sinister.
In any case, here are the ads. I’m sure the Andre of beers is very grateful for them.
