Anna Kendrick Gets Sassy in Newcastle Mock Super Bowl Ad


Earlier this week, our other favorite internet sweetheart Anna Kendrick gave the web a good chortle with a new mock Super Bowl ad for Newcastle Brown Ale. In it, the “approachably hot” actress sits in what’s presumably her Newcastle-given dressing room and airs a not-unextensive list of grievances. Such as: not being able to say the words “Super Bowl,” being gypped out of a “sh*t-ton” of money from a beer she doesn’t even drink, and not being “beer-commercial hot.”

“I’m approachable hot, like the hottest girl in your improv class hot. Like hot to the kind of guys who feel bad calling a girl hot. But I love a challenge,” she says, mad-dogging her own reflection.

Like the rest of Newcastle’s hyper-meta Super Bowl ads, Kenrick’s spot is witty and refreshing, though maybe not quite as side-splittingly hilarious as some internet hyperbole might have you believe. It’s an undestated funny. Like, the kind of funny you’d expect from an American delivery of British humor. Like “The Office” funny. But hilarious, LOL, best thing you’ve seen all week-funny? No.


‘Milking’ Is Stupid, and a Horrible Waste of Milk

There’s an ignorant crack about British dental hygiene in here, but for the sake of journalistic integrity, I’ll refrain.

But seriously Britain, wot the bloody hell?

Joining the ranks of such tired web pranks as planking and owling, “milking” entails going out into a public space and pouring milk over your head as random passerby question your sanity. Never mind that it just looks stupid, what about all the dairy dishes you’ve now effectively barred yourself from having? Did you want some cereal for breakfast this morning? How about a homemade milkshake for dessert?

I guess you could do what the guy at 2:03 did and bring your bowl into the milk shower along with you, but I for one prefer my breakfasts hair and dumbass-free.
