Yuengling "The Edge" (2018) :30 (USA)

"The only way to find the edge is to go over it." Does that mean drink till you drop? What then follows are platitudes we've heard a dozen times before or more. Go bigger. Rank up the night. It's a shame because Tap into your inner eagle could lead somewhere cool and I don't even mind spread your wings as a tagline. But the visuals are so pedestrian it just looks like something you'd find on Getty if you searched 'good times." Washing the car and getting sprayed with a hose. Playing darts. Having a cookout. This could be for any beer. And that's a shame. Because Yuengling has a hardcore fan base, second only to PBR, except with much less of the hipster stench attached. Yuengling is America's oldest brewery, too. Which is something else they could have mined. What a shame.
