    That was pretty funny.

    Wonder why they didn't just embed the vid. or link to it instead of java.

    There is no sexual content on it... It's a beer advertisement.

    It was displayed "Ages 18+" on the web site. Why argue?

    Not arguying. Your post might lead some people to believe that's a sexual content ad and not see it, they might be a work...

    I am sure it says 18+ just because it's beer and you must have at least 18+ to drink it, legally.

    Music is Carmina Burana by Carl Orff, part of O Fortuna (or is it that O Fortuna is part of Carmina Burana). Either way, great peice of music.
