Watch Will Ferrell's Awesome Old Milwaukee Ads

New, 10 comments

Comedian Will Ferrell is at the point in his career where he can do pretty much whatever he wants, and it turns out that "whatever he wants" is making a slew of local Old Milwaukee commercials for small cities in the Midwest. The beer company told WQAD in Davenport, Iowa that Ferrell approached them about making the ads because he's a fan. Sounds good, Will Ferrell.

It turns out Ferrell made about four of the ads in Terre Haute, Indiana, and as many as ten in Davenport. Most of them seem somewhat improvised? Below, find all of the Terra Haute ads, the three Davenport ads that have already aired, and a somewhat enlightening local news report on the series. Apologies for the video quality — it seems these have not been officially posted anywhere and people are just recording them off televisions and putting them on YouTube.

Update: Two more Old Milwaukee ads, shot in Milwaukee, have popped up.
