I love this ad.


Chicago looks so great in it. It's only airing in Ireland. [info]ilovehulajosh has confirmed seeing it.

The city does look beautiful in that one, doesn't it?

I really wish they aired it here. It's a cool ad.

It almost makes me want to ride the L.

Almost.

Ha! It is odd that they don't show it in Chicago. Clearly it would have appeal.

Stranger still, to me? That they air a Budweiser commercial, celebrating Chicago, in Ireland. I mean, I love Chicago, but I hadn't heard that the city was so popular in our ancestral home.

If you read the article they talk about how it was more about finding an above ground train that went through a city.

But god knows there's a lot of Irish in Chicago.

Oh look, a link. *headdesk*

I knew there were a lot of Irish in Chicago. It's possible every Irish immigrant in Chicagoland was at the soccer match I saw in 2007 between the Chicago Fire and Celtic, Catholic Ireland's favorite team. Plenty of distinctively Irish brogues in that crowd.

My friend's wedding was the best. Her parents were both first generation from Ireland. The wedding was HUGE and full of Irish accents. (They even had a separate band playing Irish music. Her mom could dance like no one I've seen before. That woman spun.)

One of these years I'd like to go to the Celtic Fest.

Great icon! (I may have said that before.)
