Popeye Beer ad

Please forgive all these Popeye and Woody Woodpecker posts, but here’s a YouTube find I had to share: a 1980s British Carling Black Label Beer commercial featuring Popeye and “Brutus”. Nice to know Popeye was considered adult enough as late as this period to be in an ad for alcohol.

    If Jack Mercer came back from the dead as a walking zombie, he’d sound something like this.

    That sounded a lot like Jimmy Durante!

    Come on. Popeye is a Sailor. He should be doing condom commercials also.

    Short, but clever, and very British. The use of the newspaper comic strip to hide Popeye’s copyright notice is a nice touch.
