Czech beer commercial presents a magical manly misogynistic world where all women are blow-up dolls.


Don't worry, you don't need the English translation with this international universal message: real men don't listen to a fucking word their wives/girlfriends say. Can I get HOO-AH my Y-chromosomed Brethren? You can just picture the envious Budweiser marketing brahs high-fiving each other over the conference room table after a late-night viewing of this piece of advertising art. American Misogynists? You already have your favorite sunglasses, hardware store, auto dealership, server company, and dating service. Now, you have a new favorite alcoholic beverage. (Also note the flabby yet sunken-chested everyman body of our hero as compared to his lithe model companion.)
thanks to Edith George for the tip

When she started deflating it was really disturbing. Like she was dead. Prost!

hello from prague! a very good knowledge of czech culture, congratulation...
i do not like the taste of this spirit, so mixed up with tonic is finnaly bearable for me :-)
but it is immensely popular thx mainly their popular advertising. It is always depicting men looking for sme relaese from the annoying ordinary day... this particular ad went I think a bit too far. But it has not elicit any real protest against it. they even have a print campaign where too girls are kissing, and the slogan says smthg like let the girls play if they want (we, men, have better entertainment). I definitely do not agree with this , a woman is WOMAN and a shot of booze might only shorten the time before...( :-)

I don't agree with the title, viz, "all women are." Clearing the fantasy is just about the woman who manages to bitch even on vacation at the beach.

Frankly, having the hot air let out of any partner is more generous than the Jaws on jaws fantasy I'd be having.
