James Bond: Beer Me

Hillary Busis, writing for EW.com (via CNN.com):

“In an upcoming ad campaign, the blond Bond is going to forgo his trademark cocktail for a swig of Dutch beer. Let’s hope it doesn’t arrive shaken.”

Do not like. The last two Bond films have each been a catalog of product placement, though not distastefully so. Ditching the spy's signature libation, however, might be going a step too far.

On the other hand, I'm so ready for another Daniel Craig Bond flick. Perhaps I'll knock back two Vespers as I watch, to make up for Bond-san's lack. On PPV, of course.

At least the brew will be a Heineken, and thereby qualify as "good beer."
