DANGER: Rooftop Drinking Sweeps The Nation

New York Times reports that some curmudgeons did not appreciate the Bud Light Super Bowl spot, where a guy is depicted spending quality time with his beer.

Critics said that the commercial sent a dangerous message that it was fun to drink on rooftops and that the ad violated the beer industry’s advertising and marketing standards, which stipulate that ads “should not portray beer drinking before or during activities, which for safety reasons, require a high degree of alertness or coordination.”

It seems pretty clear that some people take advertising—and themselves—way too seriously.
