Mr. Magoo Shills for Beer

My how things change. Another night cursed with the dreaded insomnia saw me aimlessly looking over the Internet for some sort of entertainment. Eventually, I found myself watching these:

Apparently, Mr. Magoo was the spokesman for Stag Beer in the 60s. Can you imagine something like this ever happening now? A cartoon character with a specific appeal to children, whose farsightedness causes other drivers to abandon the road at their peril, is the spokesman for a major beer company.

Just imagine him in the drunk tank: ‘Oh Magoo, you’ve done it again!’
