Keystone Light commercial...are they calling themselves the "red neck" beer?

Have you seen it? The guy in the commercial is they stereotype of "white trash" . Keystone is a cheaper beer and it seems like they are marketing towards poor people. Let me see if I can You Tube it for ya.

What are your thoughts? Funny, condesending, or both?

  • I come from a family of "rednecks", lol.  I find it offensive because we drink Bud in my family, ha ha.  We may live in trailors and sport mullets but damnit we don't mess around when it comes to beer.  I haven't actually watched the commercial but being a redneck is something my family and I joke about so no, I don't take offense.

  • They are full of themselves if they are attempting to be the redneck beer. All the rednecks I know drink PBR, Bud Light, or Coors.

  • haha! We are sort of hillbilly ourselves... I just thought about it after seeing the commercial. We own a doublwide right now, and I noticed a lot of the crappier trailers across the way where all they do is party, that's what they drink. I see boxes of it on garbage day. It's actually not a bad tasting beer!

  • I agree with pookiekins, they must be fooling themselves. If my family buy "cheap" beer, it's "Natty" Light...lol Natural Light. Otherwise it is Miller Light or Bud Light.

  • My dads people are from Kentucky, my moms people are from Tennessee.  I've actually asked my dad why he drinks Bud and that was his response.  He said "darlin, we may live in trailors and sport mullets but I'll be damned if we skimp on the beer", lol.  I think so many jokes are made about rednecks that hey you might as well have fun with it.  So that's what we do.  When my dad says "tomatoes", it's "tamaters".  It's all about having fun and being happy with who you are I think.  I think if you take offense to it then you haven't embraced your true redneck self, lol.

    We drive our four wheeler around the park in the summer..hehe. I heard a song about me and my hubby the other day! We are high class white trash. We live in a nice, newer doublewide, flat screen tvs, nice cars in the driveway and a few toys on the side..hehe.

  • i find it funny, but only because it's always been a joke among people I've known that Keystone Light and PBR are the "red-neck" beers. I'm not really sure why. I guess because it's the cheapest of the beers.
