Welcome to my blog. I write about fitting in, sticking out, and missing the motherland as a serial foreigner.

Why are beer commercials always the funniest?

With all the Olympics we've been watching, we've seen quite a few commercials. I hate all of them, except this one:

I can't quite put my finger on what is so hilarious to me about this advertisement. Is it the identifiability with the loud cell phone guy? Is it the particular phrases he uses, especially the über-annoying "where are you at" construction? Is it the quasi-Mexican accent of the beer guy? Is it the way his voice sounds oddly dubbed? Or is it, and I think it is, the peculiar way he says "cerveza"?

(The audio sync on the clip is slightly off, which is too bad, because half the fun is the timing. Hopefully, you've been lucky enough to see this ad in person.)
