This Week: Wine from the 50s, Del Boy plays it cool at the bar and a yet another dubious Japanese whisky commercial

Published:  23 July, 2008

Lots to talk about this week in Harpers' YouTube and quirkies round-up

Setting aside the host of April Fools stories this week, there was still enough other material to keep us amused this week.

First up is a new wine club targeted at dog lovers. The website even has an excruciatingly titled "Yappy Hour". Let's just 'paws' for a moment's thought on that terrible pun

This is an oldie but definitely a goodie. Ever had an embarrassing moment at a tasting when you've been a wee bit worse for wear? Probably, but I bet you haven't done anything like this - Del Boy shows how not to act cool in a bar situation.

We also stumbled upon this old (as in black and white) wine commercial. The brand has long since disappeared but I'm sure there are a few Harpers readers who will remember it.

What Else? Well there's this amusing Malibu ad, and another instalment in our series of Japanese whisky commercials with celebrity endorsement - this time from Keanu Reeves.

And Finally We said we wouldn't dwell on April Fools but this 'news story' did creep through on Harpers website earlier this week.
