Thread Name: beer commercials/jingles
Subject: RE: beer commercials
One of two UK TV ads for Whitbread Best Bitter circa 1982
tune Abdul the Bulbul Emir

Now stories are told of a brave man of old
Whose interest was Whitbread best beer
But he new a klutz who drove him nearly nuts
That was Abdul the Bulbul Amir

Now that snake in the grass was a pain in the neck
Claiming Whitbread tastes best from the jar,
And this man most irate, with his own glass quite straight
Was Count Ivan Skavinsky Skavar.

Well those boastful old goats went out canvassing votes
But one thing they both did forget,
Be it straight glass or jar, Whitbread's not particular,
'Cos the best "Best" needs no etiquette.

p.s. if anyone has the full lyrics of the other Ad, please post to DT Abdul
