Shemon & Sheppard – In The Afternoon

Weekdays 2pm-6pm

Today is National Beer Lover’s Day .  And we like beer on the Shemon and Sheppard Show.  So today we will quiz Pete on famous beer commercials over the years for Wiki-Pete-ia.

In case you are not fortunate enough to be lucky caller number nine at 239-337-ESPN, then you are in luck!  Play at home and dazzle your family!  Stump your co-workers with useless knowledge!  Amaze your friends with your newfound intelligence!  Below are the actual questions AND ANSWERS heard during Wiki-Pete-ia on our show.

In honor of National Beer Lover’s Day , we’d like to point out a lot of time, money, and creativity is put into marketing campaigns for national beer companies.  There are so many beers to choose from that these companies must go the extra mile in order to make their product stand out above the rest.  A common theme among beer commercials shows vibrant attractive people enjoying life to the max because they are holding a beer can in their hand.  The message is:  If you drink our beer your life will be amazing.  Some of these commercials are really good and become memorable classics over time.  So, with that in mind we will do Famous Beer Commercial Trivia for Wiki-Pete-ia.  Good luck to you!
