Blog: Andy MortonIs this the worst drinks ad of all time?

Andy Morton | 12 August 2015

We are well served in the drinks industry by quality advertising campaigns.

Some make you laugh.

Some make you think.

And some feature Arnold Schwarzenegger playing table tennis.

But, unfortunately, the latest campaign from the UK's Premier Estates Wine doesn't do any of that.

It just makes you cringe.

Seemingly dreamed up by a couple of teenage boys let loose in the marketing department, 'Taste the Bush' is truly as bad as the tagline suggests (note the position of the glass and its contents - very funny, guys).

Indeed, the only thing worse is the obviously-Australian actress's English accent, though that may simply be an attempt to distance herself from this car-crash of an advert.
