Will Ferrell Promoting 'Scorpion Beer'

Faux commercial ties into latest film

Published in CSP Daily News

LOS ANGELES -- Fresh off his satirical but real Old Milwaukee beer commercials, actor Will Ferrell is shilling for another brand--Cerveza Scorpion (Scorpion Beer). This time, however, the brew doesn't really exist--yet; it's a not-so-stealthy trailer for his new film, Casa de mi Padre.

The film, which is slated to hit theaters March 16, is a parody of Spanish-language telenovelas. Co-stars include Genesis Rodriguez (Man on a Ledge), Diego Luna (Y Tu MamaTambien), Efren Ramirez (Napoleon Dynamite) and Gael Garcia Bernal (The Motorcycle Diaries).

Scorpion Beer's satiric tagline?  "Cuando estes tomando mas de doce." ("When you're having more than 12.")
