I think that guy in the parachute didn't ACTUALLY land on the target.

I kept expecting to see the "Nairobi Trio."

Looks like it should be a commercial for something a bit more upscale, like cognac or Champaign.

Brings back memories of my feed barrel stash of Colt 45 at the Ag Farm. Almost got caught one day when the instructor was leaning on the partially filled barrel and started to swirl it around while talking to us. We preferred that brand over the other brands.

@Expat47 -- I've seen behind-the-scenes stuff about what it takes to set up and shoot those commercials. They are done in one shot but not necessarily in one take -- if there's a flub near the end, it can take half a day to get everything ready for another try!
