Oh, what lovely times.

Carling Black Label? Good heavens, now there is a brand name from out of the past!! For many years their ads in Canada consisted of some guy off camera whistling a two-note whistle, the type used to attract a waitress' attention, followed by "Hey Mabel....Black Label!" Mabel, as I recall, was a perpetually smiling, buxom wench whose goal in life was to keep serving the menfolk with glasses of foaming Black Label beer.

Black Label is now seen as bit of a 'low rent' brand...in fact, while I still see it on the shelves of various liquor stores and beer stores, I never see anyone actually drinking it!

Red Barrel. I enjoyed that, still have a key fob from Red Barrel some where. And Double Diamond I enjoyed, but being Canadian maybe that help me enjoy it. Black Lable??? That's yank, how can one enjoy that... What a Face

Double Diamond was a young mans drink and then you grew up and realised it was crap. Black Label i.e. Carling is not a Yank drink. You must be confusing it with something else.

First time I drank it was 1/10d. Less than 10p. Amazing really but I was only on about 11 quid a week.

Yank? I always thought Carling was part of the Carling-O'Keefe brewery (Canadian, based out of, I believe, either Toronto or Montreal).

The Brit equivalent ad would be a young lad doing a stunt or other (something "zany") and the onlookers would remark "I bet he drinks Carling Black Label". Mad

Actually one of the lads posted those Black Label commercials on this forum a few months ago. I thought the one about the German AA gunner doing the football goalie saves at the Mohne Dam was hilarious.

Beer advert ?

A couple of years ago there was an ad (I think it was for Budweiser).

It's shot in the US, there's a train rolling through a stockyard, lit by the morning sun.

Inside there's some cool dudes playing cards, playing in the background is Howling Wolf singing "Smokestack Lightnin'.

Now that was good ! Cool

Well, that one was rather clever....in a Pythonesque sort of way....nice little touches like the squire inadvertently shoving Excalibur into the rock with an "oh, crap!" look on his face, etc.

I went there once when I was retrading from Supply Specialist to Driver Radio Operator RLC (Which was an A trade - made the scalies jealous).

It's a barren and sad little outpost very much like Blackdown!

I was told that the Cpls mess was out of bounds to all but people on long courses (over 3 months) and PS.

My time there was 5 weeks learning about Ptarmigan etc so not elligible bugger off.
