Malört Now Has a Commercial

By Chuck Sudo in Food on Nov 9, 2011 4:20PM

Our Malört face has evolved past the standard "It tastes like rotting Hell" look to a more natural rictus grin. The taste is always a conversation starter, even the folks at Jeppson's Malört seem to recognize that and are able to have a good sense of humor about it.

Now comes the first commercial for Malört (Update: the video seems to be from comedian Sam Mechling, not Malört), which manages to be fun with the flavor of the spirit while invoking Godwin's Law. Good show, folks.
