The infamous Eric Clapton Michelob advert from early 1988. The television spot was filmed at New York City’s Lone Star Cafe the previous September and aired during ABC’s coverage of Super Bowl XXII.
Those who knew of his past saw it as a curious move for a man who had kicked a heavy drinking habit earlier in the decade (At no point, though, is he seen drinking any Michelob or speaking on its behalf). Worse still, he had started to drink again and found himself at Hazelden for a second time.
One of my favorite Indy Cars (and one of my favorite Indy Car drivers). Miller sure has a knack for making the cars it sponsors look great.
I just got a bunch of my dad’s paintings back from my old room. Artistic ability skips a generation in my family.
