You know, some things just don’t get old, especially when it involves the combination of two of my favorite things: orchestras and beer.
Here’s a real 2007 Australian commercial for Victoria Bitter beer starring the Melbourne Symphony and Orchestra Victoria (playing as the “Victoria Bitter Orchestra”) in a performance of “The VB Stubby Symphony.” Also below is an equally amusing video showing a behind-the-scenes look into the making of the commercial.
Kudos to the orchestras and to VB for making this happen. Other possible combos:
- The San Francisco Symphony and Bear Republic Brewery
- The Los Angeles Philharmonic and Sanford Winery
- The Louisville Orchestra and Woodford Reserve bourbon (perhaps this will be more appropriate now that they’re coming out of bankruptcy)
