I don't know if I actually "hate" this commercial. I think its kinda stupid, but then I have a thing for hot european women, especially with scottish accents.
 
However, this ad baffles me.
  1. If I'm ready to take life seriously why would I be getting hammered on scotch? To get seriously f***ed up?
  2. This woman must have a drinking problem. She's almost having an orgasm over this scotch.
  3. Whats with the face she makes towards the end? Its a "This actually tastes like sh*t." face.
  4. I find it strange that some guy in the background yells out "All hail to the drinkin' man!" when the commercial has a woman in it.
  5. If the idea is to market Dewars Scotch to us regular joes I really don't get it. I mean, I can go out and buy some Dewars now. But she seems to imply that Dewars is for "classy, upscale" folks. I'm thinking rich folks can afford better scotch than I can, so it can't be like they sen their buttlers to the store for dewars.

Theres something about her mouth. Watch it when she talks. I think she's already phucked up. Its like they got her wasted on scotch and started filming. She even moves like shes had a few.

As long as she's a 1-time thing and doesn't do for the Irish accent what Sofia Vergara did for the Mexican accent.

This hasn't been posted on in almost a year but they're still playing the 1st 2 commercials of Dewars "all. hail to the drinking man" campaign. They either need to keep moving the storyline along or ditch these 2 ads altogether. As has been asked before, who the Eff is Angus? Why do they have her acting bi-polar? Why does it sound like she's popping bubble wrap when she breaks the seal on that bottle? Fake accents, annoying noise, invisible characters, storyline that goes nowhere...... Dewars, please end the torture. OR!! Is this your way of selling more alcohol by literally driving people to drink by annoying them??!!

Dewars is a Scottish company, or was originally, so the drunk chick is a Scottish lassie.  Angus, I believe, is a generic Scotsman, who is saying "All hail to the drinkin' man" but since she's a woman, she's pissed he isn't including women in the "all hail."  (Even though the Dewars slogan is "The Drinking Man's Scotch.")  So she wants Angus to STFU and go back to sleep after he passed out from drinking all that scotch.  Her lips are phucked up because she probably had one too many collagen injections along with her one too many shots of scotch, and she should be wearing red lipstick, not that nude crap.

1. If you are going to take scotch "seriously", you won't touch this stuff.
2. Some scotch is that good. This stuff, is not.
3. Yup. l I bet the actress actually just drank some in this shot.
4. Praise be to drunkards!
5. Indeed, classy upscale folks won't bother with booze that is found in the speed racks of every local dive.

She is a British actress though not Scottish or Irish; her name is Claire Forlani. It would seem that many people got quite upset about her awful accent when the first commercial appeared last year. One article I found quickly was from the London Daily Mail making fun of how awful she sounded. No one can seem to figure out who Ă„ngus is although Angus is an extremely common name in Scotland.

But if you are English, Scottish, Welsh or Irish, aren't you British since Britain encompasses all of these peoples?

The only reason I differentiated is because some people think she is trying to speak with an Irish accent, while the Dewar's is Scottish, and when you look her up in IMDB, you see she is English. And all of those are under the larger umbrella" of British.

British=inhabitants of the Island of Britain, so Scottish, Welsh, and English

Ireland is separate as it's a separate island, but inhabitants of the GOOD half of the island are citizens of the U.K. (As are all British citizens)

So she's English, British, and a citizen of the U.K.

Though, honestly, the only people I've ever heard actively use British are foreigners. Most in the U.K. refer to themselves according to which country they're from. So Claire is English (from London), Steven Moffat is Welsh, and David Tennent is Scottish.
