I like it. Except the guy really drinking that beer on the corner bar in Southie doesn’t actually believe that.


#4

That ad’s not realistic . . . there should be at least ten more people in the bar even during the middle of the day.


#5

Pretty sure I’ve seen this guy in the Sligo after a Dunks run. Hope most Massholes vote Yes on 3.


#6

Probably only 10:40am and he’s getting the day started… sorry, stahted


#7

My standard Facebook counter-comment to the real life version of that guy (back when I wasted time commenting back to people on Facebook) was, "It’s called ‘Liberty.’ Look into it.


#9

The way Southie is getting gentrified, who knows. My guess is that guy is in Slummerville or somewhere in Dorchester, not Southie.


#10

Yeah, you’d probably be hard-pressed to find anybody who admits to not using their blinker.


#11

Six of one, half dozen of the other right?


#12

well, yeah, but only because of how much Davis has gentrified.

True story: Just last night I was sitting in Anna’s, inhaling a superchileverdewithextracheeseandsourcreme burrito (a too infrequent event, now that I’ve moved to the 'burbs) staring out the window thinking “you know, I’m really glad that the Sligo is still open. I hope it never goes away.”

(not that I was actually a patron there when I lived in the neighborhood. I’m just, you know, glad it’s still going strong :wink: )


#15

Wipes tear from eye. Fuckin’ A right I’m a Masshole.


#16

I haven’t been in there in years despite living a block away, but I understand it’s the same dirty, sticky, stinky townie bar that it’s been for decades, thank goodness. Hope it never changes.


#17

When they are used, it’s only a diversion. I’ve seen Boston drivers in the right lane, signal a right then cross two lanes to turn left with the right turn signal still blinking!


#18

Now thats an ad I enjoyed watching.

Also, for some reason a song by Dennis Leary is now stuck in my head…


#19

I started out thinking “Holy shit! I know this guy!” then switched to “Nah, never met this guy before…”

But still a good ad.


#20

That’s called a deke. :wink: (hockey on the brain. saw a great vid of an old Boston-Rangers game that ended with Bruins in the stands. Now I get it. The Bruins are Massholes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fpbD6W7YT5A)

But he might be just getting off work from the night shift and it is his “unwind after a long day”
