Come On Now, Even Wales Got Schooled in Existentialism

welsh_whisky.png

Here's an ad for Brecon Five vodka that got people's panties in a twist because it plays on the stereotype that Welsh people are stupid. (We never heard that, but we did hear they were cannibals.)

Brecon Five is a label under the Welsh Whisky Company. It's not the only vodka ever to poke fun at its heritage to make itself look better.

Anywho, despite more than 20 complaints (!!!!!), the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) decided to clear the ad of charges against the intellect of Welshkind.

If you know of the ASA and its valiant efforts to protect gullible women from thinking mascara lengthens eyelashes, you probably feel as surprised as we do.
