Real Kiwi Men Song (the Southern Man Beer Ads) #3

Video

The song set to some of the “Southern Men” Speight’s beer ads.

Manliness is not about beer drinking, but it lubricates the loins of masculinity. It’s odd that the marketing ploy of the beer company went with such a definatively anti-Auckland and anti-urban parochial take on manhood, but it was so compelling, that even Auckland Jafas bought and drank Speights beer because they wanted to be “hard southern men” an icon of New Zealand masculinity. It obviously worked.

Manliness Training

Video

Manliness training for the Super 14 Rugby tournament in New Zealand, set to Amazing Grace. From DDB NZ and Prodigy and the marketing gang at Speights mind-grooving their conception of masculinity. New Zealand men get this and Kiwi women dream of it, that one of these heroes will come win her heart.

Go you good things.

Real Kiwi Men (the Southern Man Beer Ads) #1

This is the original in the famous series of “Southern Men” Speight’s beer ads. Funny thing is, I knew the sweetheart in the man’s photo, she went to my church.

Anyway, enjoy the original ad that brought us good on ya mate,” “reckon,” and “She’s a hard road findin’ the perfect woman, boy!”  Classic.

Limp Phlegm or a ‘Man o War’?

 

Picture 2One of the most poisonous things in this world is the box jellyfish the Portugese Man o’ War.  It is full of electrical pulsating death and awe-inspiring strike power.  But not if it’s washed up on a beach like limp phlegm.  It needs the sea and wide open spaces to work its dangerousness.  In all its power, it is still see through and has the structural integrity of a plastic bag.  But it can still sting you like a lightening bolt out of hell. Some men are like phlegm on a beach, all washed-up, transparent, see-through, like discarded plastic bags.  But God has packed within even the most limp man awesome power and pulsing energy that He wants to release as the fuel of life and adventure.

Get off that beach brothers and find your sea!
