A few beers will impair anyone's judgment


Along with promoting real brands, advertising has brought to life any number of fictitious brands over the years. This ad for the Paris Las Vegas casino, by that city's R&R Partners, adds some nice ones to the roster—especially the Napoleon Stout and the Marie Antoinette Ale. (See the full ad here.) But when's the last time a man walked into a bar anywhere other than France and found two French beers on tap? Other readers will be scandalized by the notion that Napoleon would betray the ideals of the French Revolution by dallying with Marie Antoinette, of all aristos. But this does lend support to the "Everything's sexier in Paris Las Vegas" theme line.
