Bad news: Biden’s Hennessy ad campaign canceled

posted at 6:59 pm on January 12, 2010 by Allahpundit

Via Ace, a clinic in how to build a comedy sketch around photoshops. Photoshops that are realistic enough, in fact, to have apparently convinced a certain news mega-site that shall remain nameless — or not — that this was for real.

Nothing says suave, my friends, like a beautiful woman on one’s arm, a glass of Hennessy in one’s hand, and bon mots about Indians working at 7-Eleven coming out of one’s mouth.

This Bud’s for you, Joe

With Biden already a joke, this is a parody of a parody.

I don’t always drink Hennessey, but when I do, I prefer an articulate and light skinned African American with no discernable negro dialet to serve it to me before being tested by the whole world. Stay thirsty my friends.

abobo on January 12, 2010 at 7:02 PM

ok, just looking at the still is making my stomach churn….ugh

Photo shop. Or She was already passed out from too much firewater.

This was produced by someone with the mind of a child to believed by others with the mind of a child. Proof that single digit IQs do exist.

I wonder why they didn’t make a crack about him “layin’ pipe” in that commercial. All his buddies down in Scranton, that’s where he’s from just ask him, are like Joe the real plumber, with a license. They’d love a pipe layin joke.

Biden likes a clean and articulate liquor.

Hilarious. Love the Onion.

somewhatconcerned on January 12, 2010 at 7:10 PM

So was the HuffPo/Onion story in bad taste? Maybe. Bad timing? Absolutely.

And if the piece had been done to a Republican in a similar situation would it have been considered bad taste or timing?
Absolutely not.

4shoes on January 12, 2010 at 7:12 PM

HuffPo must be a gaggle of half wits…

I wonder if this is what Michelle had in mind when she stated that she was now proud of her Country?
Can we ask her again, just for the record?

Electrongod on January 12, 2010 at 7:19 PM

‘I don’t feel no ways tired. I come too far from where I started from. Nobody told me that the road would be easy—but they did say there’d be more Hennessy at the end of it’

Only to add that Biden lives vicariously through photoshop’d renderings of himself.

I’m going to use this the next time I’m out on the town and substitute whatever I’m having for Hennessey.

Like Biden says: “It`s a four letter word and it sells, S-E-X!”

ThePrez on January 12, 2010 at 7:37 PM

Why are you guys enjoying this? Its just using the Jon Stewart “joking” that Democrats are too cool, which isn’t even an insult. I miss the days when comedy writers could call a Democrat President fat and sleazy.

You know how you see something on the internet and say “This has to be fake?” Well, this has to be real.

Is that Jill Hennessey?

Dude. Somebody photoshop me like that and I’ll admit to it.

As has been acknowledged already, this effort was extremely above average.
Oh, and racist.
Props to the married, family lovin’, occasionally sneaky tokin’ man abobo.

Joe Biden is so much cooler in theory than in practice.

I think I know her.

She’s a waitress at the Old Ebbitt Grill, on W. 15th Street near the While House.

Joe’s just helping her get over Teddy. Come on, people, have some compassion!

Art imitating life? The line about him taking “Joe Time” reminded me of late last year when Obama was doing TV ads for George Lopez, instead of fixing the economy.

I gave up drinking over 20 years ago. Now I know why, I missed the opportunity to be V.P. to a Negro without an accent or sufficient melon to be called African-American.

The pitches to Hennessy, Kahlua, Maker’s Mark, etc. for product placement must have been pretty funny.
