Maccabee, an Israeli beer, isn’t exactly known for being, well, flavorful. To that end, the company that brews it decided that the way to sell more beers was not to re-formulate the taste. No, that would be too simple.
Instead, they decided to hire the Old Spice Guy (aka former NFL player Isaiah Mustafa) to question what exactly it means to “taste,” with sweeping images of families, souffles, and was there an eagle in there? I’m not sure.
It really is 1/3 marketing genius, and 2/3 Chewbacca Defense.
