President of Beers

This is possibly one of my favorite commercials of all time. And believe me, I have an advertising minor, so I really pay attention to ads.

I couldn't find a direct link to the file (lousy flash site). Just go to http://www.millerbeer.com/home.jsp and click TV Ads. It should be the first one that pops up, titled "The President of Beers".

I'm probably a bit biased, as I love Miller beer. Also, Bob Odenkirk, (the speaker in the commercial), is one of my favorite comedians.

Pretty cool! If you don't mind my asking, what do you do now?

I'm a marketing major, advertising minor, and have a concentration in communications. I don't necessarily have to go into advertising, but I do like it.

Hahaha!

Democracy! Break that down: Demo, Crossy. *blank stares from the audience*

I enjoyed that even though I don't drink alcohol.

I am a web designer. I became interested in it when I was a sophomore and started teaching myself HTML. I eventually took a couple of classes in Web Communication...and here I am!

I love it. Advertising was fun, but I enjoy the web so much more. I would have switched majors, but K-State doesn't offer a web degree. The advertising background has its benefits, though. I look at lot more closely at content and the message being delivered than most web designers.

I also freelance in graphic design - logo work, web design and maintenance, wedding invitations and packages, etc.

Exactly. The knowledge that I've picked up applies at my job right now. I always have to tell my employees how to "word" things when they talk to customers. Our customer service levels have skyrocketed, partially due to that.
