Hotpoint refrigerator ad from the 1970s targeted the Irish.

(click ad for closer look)
Fucking Leap Day. This should be a day when everybody gets to do whatever the hell they want, within the law. Like wear a cowboy hat in Paris. Bang a MILF stewardess. Or, slowly drink bourbon on the rocks all damn day long. Which brings me to this ad. That's me at 7, grabbing some ice for my first Highball of the morning while chatting up a couple of neighborhood hotties sipping rum & Cokes. re: this post's headline—I'm about 3/4s Irish, and a couple of relatives have died from alcoholism, so chill.

Won't love you and leave you? That's some copy. Happy Leap Day. For whatever reason.

What a shameless, gratuitous stereotyping of the drunken, fighting, red-faced Mick bastards.

Those are obviously Cape Cods that your neighbors are drinking. Nice try.

So what kind of drum kit do you play? I had a Yamaha, then went for the Roland td-20, and now I'm missing the feel of an acoustic kit. I'd like a nice DW 4 piece.

Imagine! Getting ice without having to open the freezer. What will they think of next--the same set in avocado?

God damn do I miss Harvest Gold. The only way that ad could be better is if there were some Avocado Green appliances mixed in there.
