View Full Version : Where are the people in the russian beer ads

Seriously and curiously; do you know why there are never any people shown in the beer commercials on TV here? Actually no living organisms are visible at all, (excluding trees and grass of course)
It's intriguing because I donít know why and only get blank looks from the bar staff. I cant stop watching them because it pushes their production techniques to new grounds as they try to animate and simulate the world without people.

Fascinating! but still leaves me with an empty feeling,,,, that only another beer will satisfy!

'as a matter of fact Iíve got it now'

so it really works!

The reason is it is against the law to show people handling, drinking or appearing in ads with beer in, so the only way out for ad agencies is to make the kind of ads you are talking about.
