    So 70’s! It reminded me those blondes of the beer’s ads. =)

    LOVE IT. Am I being too crass and on-the-nose if I point out how delightful it is that she’s holding those highballs like a man’s balls? Oh well, TOO LATE!!! ;D

    • Wow, I feel like a total innocent convent girl for not noticing that. Of course now it’s obvious; I knew there was *something* about the image I loved (aside from her hair). It’s a good twist on the old ‘sex sells’ style of advertising, where they subtly imply female dominance whilst superficially appealing to the male viewer. I like it!

      Phew, thank God I thought it was just me and my lecherous brain!

    if the Haig does not hurt it too would drink it for breakfast!

    WOW. Look at the size of those measures. Proper 70s, before ‘binge drinking’ became an issue rather than a lifestyle!
