I was supposed to have spent this evening drinking copious amounts of Champagne and prosecco in celebration of the fact that I have finally turned in my application to the Food Studies Doctoral Program! But sadly, winter is here and therefore I have a cold and the only liquids I'm ingesting right now are emergen-c and TheraFlu. Mmmmmmmm.
I have, however, found a way to enjoy these longed for beverages vicariously, thanks to the wonders of YouTube!
This first gem came into my life courtesy of the Star Wars Christmas Special, which David subjected me to last night. STAY AWAY FROM IT - IT IS HORRIBLE AND IT IS TWO HOURS LONG. But this ad is quite worthwhile. In the 1970's, it seems, they really
knew how to sell wine.
I'm pretty sure there's a dissertation here...
And here's one for bubbly, featuring none other than Orson Welles!
And here's a treat from Gallo's early days... (a ring-a-ding-ding)
(p.s. the "here"s in the above three sentences are links to three superduper wine commercials - I don't think you're dumb, I just thought I would clarify as David claimed that it was unclear.)
(pardon my language, as most of you know, I would never say this. However it's sort of funny and quite topical so I just couldn't resist.)
