Mila Kunis?!? She like bourbon and is the new official face of Jim Beam, according to AdWeek. Look for some TV ads soon.
After all the excitement in last week’s episode, things were bound to slow down around Harlan County. And so instead of celebrating with Pappy, schemes are sprung to Ancient Age (oof) and more potent partnerships to Wild Turkey.
Typically, Art Mullen relaxes with a reliable bottle of Blanton’s. But after you just nabbed the big fish, Detroit-mob boss Mr. Tonin, the fancy stuff magically appears. (Plus, if there’s more drama to come, you’ll want a little easing of the tension first.)
Aaron Paul opted for Bushmills (duh) when Breaking Bad finished, and after Johnnie Walker made special Superbowl releases, Earl Thomas’ gesture makes sense. He gave his teammates all a bottle of the stuff to toast and remind them to “Keep Walking” (nice plug, ad-wizards). Someone on the Broncos did this too, but for some reason it wasn’t as much of a story. No word on whether Marshawn Lynch prefers this to Fireball.
OK, this is just well-placed advertising in Miami. But it’s All-Star Weekend and here’s hoping Kevin Durant is properly toasted at every available moment.
Via @bordash, the newest man in late night is down with the best distiller on the west coast. Sure, it’s the absinthe, but now it’s absolutely possible a Breaking & Entering is lurking in the office somewhere.
Via Deadspin, when you win the Super Bowl, you can slide on the front of a parade boat in order to grab Fireball Whiskey from fans. Well down, Marshawn Lynch—total beast mode.
Perhaps the greatest whiskey sequence in all of TV—Ron Swanson finally at the Lagavulin distillery.
At first glance, this seems like a first. In last week’s Justified, Raylan gets to housesit for a wealth con who’s place has been repossessed by the state of Kentucky. So he helps himself to what’s available, and the everyday lawman gets the rich folks’ Elmer T. Lee to enjoy.
But… it’s not the first wealthy con with Elmer in Harlan county. A certain Pappy Drinker from S3 was happy to settle for this when Pappy was unavailable. At any rate, it’s a step up from Raylan’s usual Jim Beam.
