I have vague memories of Old Milwaukee ads being on the TV when I was a kid but I certainly haven't seen one live in years.
In the mid-west though, Old Milwaukee ads are going strong thanks in part to Will Ferrell...
I think I like that one best out of the selection that Laughing Squid pulled together.
Remember when you used to try to burn ants with a little plastic magnifying glass when you were a kid? Of course you do, this is like that only much much more so...
I can't help but wonder about what the more practical applications (if any) might be for a contraption like this.
Most people have a lot of trouble wrapping their minds around big numbers and the chunk of the wealth in America that the 1% is hanging on to is literally off the charts...
It's a good visual aid for just how out of whack the distribution of wealth is in the US these days and just how hard it is to actually understand and grapple with. The 1% seems and sounds like it should be a mythic straw man that the rest of us are railing against, only it's a very real problem.
This video was all over of late, if you hadn't seen it yet I hope you take the time to watch it and share it now.
