Copywriters! Write the headline for this Russian Jameson's ad.

(click ad) Crowdsourced creativity! It's the advertising of the now and the future! A future without ad agencies! (Yay!) More and more brands are doing it. And why not?!? It's cheap! The Irish whiskey brand is running an online effort in Russia inviting anyone to write the conversation for this poster. Finalists will receive a bottle of hooch, and the winning entry will be published in Russian Maxim. If you know Russian, here's the page of submissions. Here's mine:
Man #1: "Comrade, I think that bear is going to eat us."
Man #2: I think you're right, comrade!"
Write yours in the comments, if you want.

The copy of this ad sucks. No wonder they wanna change it. Sadly, your copy, Ranter, sucks too. In the past, you've come up with much better funnier lines. Try again.

Man #1: Your knee is touching my knee. When I agreed to have a drink with you...wait - there is a bear. Is this symbolic of something?

Man #2: I cannot concentrate. The perspective on this table is all jacked up.

Man #1: "That bear is badly photoshopped."

Man #2: "Don't worry, they forgot to photoshop any drinks onto the table as well. We could be advertising John West for all I know."

Use better judgment. Drink Jameson. Responsibly.

Did you mean Maksim Aleksandrovich Chmerkovskiy and Dmitry Aleksandrovich Chaplin (both share the same middle name)from Dancing with the Stars? I've always fantasized about having those two go down on each other.

I'm sorry to dampen your pas de soixante neuf fantasy, BUT I was referring to Maksim Belotserkovsky and Dmitri Khotliykova who coincidentally both share the same middle name of Purishkevitch.

Russia. Bear. Drinking. All that's missing is a police man. War & Peace anyone? That great, Jameson... because if I'm drinking, the last thing I want to think about is 1500+ page novel. Russia. Bear. Drinking. Pranks. And I doubt they read War & Peace.

Nice word verification: Fecker. But I'll simply say Jameson's ad team is a bunch of feckless idiots. Oh, and if I want to read, I'll read. If I want to drink, then that's what I'll focus on.
