High Life guy tries out one-second comedy

1second

Even Windell Middlebrooks, the Miller High Life delivery guy, has trouble being funny in just one second. He's asked to do so in MillerCoors' new campaign from Saatchi & Saatchi. The idea is to poke fun at Anheuser-Busch for shelling out so much cash for its Super Bowl slots. In contrast to A-B's big outlay, Miller will run just a single one-second ad on game day—and a :30 all next week advertising the :01. There are also a slew of one-second spots with Middlebrooks on 1secondad.com. In this lousy economy, the idea isn't so bad. But of course, by focusing so much on A-B, Miller does run the risk of seeming a little jealous.
