Ferrell stars in beer ads

The Blades of Glory actor is the unlikely face of the Pabst Brewing Company’s Old Milwaukee drink and appears in the firm’s comedy TV promos, which show Ferrell in towns across the U.S. promoting the beer.

In one clip, he says, “When I’m not too busy being a big time Hollywood phoney, I like to come out here to Davenport, sit on my favourite log and crack open an ice cold Old Milwaukee. Truth be told I’ve never been to Davenport… but it’s something I wanna do.”

Pabst CEO Bryan Crowley tells the Quad City Times, “Will approached Old Milwaukee because he’s a big fan of the beer and thought it would be fun to make the commercials, and we couldn’t be more excited that he did.”
