    Maybe, even, the best beer commercial—dare I write it?—ever?

    What's not to love? It's got a cops and robbers chase, "crashes," cheesy 1980s music—and, brilliantly, the spot doubles as a Don't Drink/Drive ad.

    The song: John Farnham: "Thunder In Your Heart"

    Shot in Los Angeles.

    Ad agency: Clemenger BBDO

    From 2010. Men look better in slow motion. The wonderfully stupid song is sung to the tune of "Nessun dorma," a Puccini aria.
