Here in Canada, and perhaps in other markets, Canadian Club Whisky has been running an ad campaign relying on the premise that your Dad used to gently caress a lot of girls. I'm not a marketing wizard, but I've always been under the impression that the less you make a consumer think about their parents loving, the more likely they will buy your product.
Either way, the ads are all about being less of a modern sensitive pussy, and more of a tough dude like your old pop, I guess.

Here's one right here (careful, it's a big .pdf)

They've put an ad-generator on their website, where you can upload one of your own photos. There are three templates to work with. Here's what I came up with, but I'll bet you can do better.

The implication here is that by drinking Canadian Club, you will get chicks like your mom. No thanks.

Almost as shocking as the "Your Father Fucks Wallabies" ad campaign by Fosters.

I managed to get a free whisky tumbler out of this ad campaign via bzzagent.com . Free t-shirt too, which is lame, in my opinion (says "drat right, your dad drank it.")

I love the one that's something like "Your dad had a van for a reason." Yeah, they probably mean a Shaggin' Wagon but nowadays that makes it sound like he was a pedophile or a sniper.

Mine was both. I hate my father. gently caress Canadian Club.

I honestly thought the ad was implying that your father slept with men first. He's just cuddling up to that other guy.

I'm kind of interpreting it to mean that your dad likes Canadian Club so much that he had sex with it (kinda like "if you like x so much, why don't you marry it?).

Hey man, don't diss all of Canada's liquor. In Newfoundland they make this wonderful thing called Screech. It's like drinking gasoline its so potent. They even hold ceremonies for those that are brave enough to try it, its called 'screeching'. One shot of it and I was already feeling tipsy.

OP - from the picture, it appears that your dad's friend was your dad's "first." His male friend. His male friend with the neck beard. If that's what Canadian Club does, I want none of it.

Corn whiskey from the southern States is about as close to pure alcohol as you can get.
