Happy Independence Eve

It’s July 3rd, Independence Day Eve. It’s time to resurrect the Newcastle Brown Ale ad campaign from last year called #IfWeWon.

Just think, if the Brits had won our tabloids would be full of gossip about the Royal Family and wondering if Kate was pregnant. Oh, wait – they are full of that nonsense.

Well, at least we don’t have the National Health Service. We just have that “tax” called ObamaCare.

We’d have better beer if the Brits won. Maybe not given the number of microbreweries we have around here in Asheville making really good beer and ales.

I know the gun prohibitionists would be cheering now if the Brits won given their gun control laws. As for me, men with guns are citizens and not subjects.

Independence Eve?

The people who brew Newcastle Brown Ale have some smart Geordies in charge of their ad campaigns. They are pushing July 3rd as a new holiday called “Independence Eve”. They also have a new hashtag campaign called #IfWeWon explaining how things would be different if the Brits had won the American Revolution.

Along with the fake holiday and hashtag campaign, Newcastle Brown Ale is releasing a series of YouTube videos. I particularly like this one contrasting the language differences between American English and British English.
