What? Say it isn’t so! Miller Brewing is pulling the plug on the Catfight series of commercials. While they were incredibly successful in creating a buzz and lots of water cooler talk, apparently they haven’t helped Miller sell any more beer.
If Miller really wants to sell more beer, I have an honest to goodness recommendation that might help: Make a beer that doesn’t suck. Miller & Miller Light are two beers that I absolutely won’t drink at all – and that’s saying a lot. I don’t care what commercials they end up using in the post-catfight era, but if they don’t make a better tasting beer I’ll never buy the stuff.
That being said, I wouldn’t mind one or two more catfight commercials, ya know, for sentimental reasons. For those of you who are choked up already (heh, heh) here are my catfight posts and links to watch the commercials online.
