Stroh's Is Spoken Here

Wow, this jingle may actually be worse than the Hyatt's. Umm, actually, after giving the Hyatt song another painful listen, this lame Stroh's song is a lot better.


  1. Is it just me or do all the people drinking the Stroh's seem like they're on coke?

  2. Is it just me or was everything in the eighties filmed in soft light?

  3. The two guys pulling beer out of the icy stream seem like they're high on something besides fishing.

    I think the soft light was a requirement during the Reagan years to burnish the hazy sense of nostalgia he tried to evoke.

  4. Looks like coke to me, too - they are all just too excited. But what's with all of the cowboy hats? Was this a Village People fashion statement or were they going after the Texas demographics?


Thanks for commenting. I moderate comments, so it may take a while for your comment to appear. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at
