Don’t Read and Drive #ThursdayDoors

One snapshot today. I took it while I was driving and, being One Of Those People, I just had to read what was written on this Budweiser beer truck. Almost ran off the road, it tickled me so.

In case you can’t read it, it says:

My other car is a Clydesdale.

Thursday Doors is the brainchild of Norm Frampton, photographer extraordinaire. Visit his site, enjoy his wonderful photographs, follow his instructions, and enter a world of doors.

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Someone sees something distracting while driving.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Love that, even though I don’t drink Bud or especially Bud Light (or any light beer.) I love, love, love the Clydesdale ads, so thanks for surviving and sharing that sign. ๐Ÿ™‚

    LOL! That’s my all-time favorite Budweiser commercial! I’m glad you didn’t run off the road, but it was a good pic to take!

      The Budweiser commercials really push the buttons, don’t they? They don’t make me buy or drink pisswater beer, but I love the commercials. ๐Ÿ˜€

    What does that have to do with beer? A good ad agency is not a tasting company giving out awards.

    It’s the same as when we think beautiful people can’t possibly be lying, because they’re, well, beautiful.

    I always remember what Sir Terry Pratchett said about elves being nasty, evil, and beautiful at the same time: “โ€˜Elves are wonderful. They provoke wonder.
    Elves are marvellous. They cause marvels.
    Elves are fantastic. They create fantasies.
    Elves are glamorous. They project glamour.
    Elves are enchanting. They weave enchantment.
    Elves are terrific. They beget terror.
    The thing about words is that meanings can twist just like a snake, and if you want to find snakes look for them behind words that have changed their meaning.
    No one ever said elves are nice.
    Elves are bad. (LL)”

    Cute. Now that is some serious brand recognition when they can allude to something in one of their ad campaigns and pretty much everyone gets the nod and the wink.

      They’ve really done a brilliant job. Not enough to get me to buy (or, worse yet, drink) their beer, but they did get me to spread their advertising for them. ๐Ÿ™‚
